Galliford Try bags £65m Blyth subsea cable factory

JDR Cable Systems, part of the TFK Group, plans to build the 70,000 sq m factory at Cambois to up production of undersea cabling that connects offshore electricity production to the mainland network.

The new facility is the first stage of JDR’s plans to expand its product portfolio to support the growing global renewable energy market, adding high voltage export and long length array cables to its existing capacity and product capabilities.

As a whole the cable manufacturer is investing £130m in the new industrial facility and hopes to start production in 2024.

Bill Hocking, chief executive of Galliford Try, said: “We are delighted to be part of this fantastic project, which adds to our excellent portfolio of work in the North East, and also helps the UK towards energy security and its net zero carbon targets.”
