Hydro Bond Engineering Ltd was formed in 1982 by a team of experienced engineers who seen the potential in developing subsea technology in the North Sea. The company established its base in Aberdeen to enhance its customer base with the offshore oil and gas industry. The company increased its capabilities over the years by becoming heavily involved in Ministry of Defence projects and is now a preferred supplier of electrical and optical connectors and penetrators to many defence related companies. Hydrobond Engineering is now a major national and international supplier of harsh environment engineered products to the oil and gas, renewable energy, oceanographic, nuclear, aquaculture industries and the Ministry of Defence.
Offshore oil explorations had not long started and the arduous conditions of underwater engineering projects necessitated specialist capabilities from specialist companies. The nature of projects was increasing in complexity and the customer portfolio was growing rapidly. In 1987 Hydro Cable Systems was created. Initially based in Arbroath and relocated to Aberdeen in 1991, Hydro Cable Systems joined with Hydro Bond Engineering and currently operate under the holding company Hydro Group plc, based in Aberdeen.
Our focus is on product innovation, design, engineering and manufacturing of harsh environment connectors, penetrators and terminators for subsea, underwater, topside and onshore applications.
