Hydro Group gets heavy with new pressure testing kit

Aberdeen firm Hydro Group can simulate the intense pressures of thousands of feet below sea level to test subsea cabling after a £250,000 investment in new equipment. The firm, which designs and manufactures cables and connectors for customers in the oil & gas, renewable-energy, defence and aerospace industries, said yesterday its new hydrostatic pressure tank could pressure test large cable assemblies and equipment up to 2,200psi, simulating depths of 5,000 feet below sea level.
