Hydro Group invested GBP 300,000 into research and development in 2012 for the development of the 36kV Dry Mate Hydro Bond Renewable Connector (HRC).
The new connector has an installation time of less than 12 hours. The connector has a 25 year operational lifespan and the ability to work at water depths of 100m and temperatures of minus four to over 25 degrees Celsius. The group plans to continue its strong level of investment into the development of HV connection infrastructure in order to enhance connection technology for subsea connection of offshore energy networks.
