BridonWire and fibre rope manufacturer Bridon has won a major contract to supply mooring cables for an oil field off the coast of Nigeria.

The Bridon Technology Centre, the Doncaster-based company received the contract from Samsung Heavy Industries, located in South Korea, to supply mooring cables for the Egina oil field.

The Egina oil field is 100 miles off the coast of Nigeria and covers an area of up to 500 sqm.

“We have significantly developed our global service offering, investing in purpose-built testing equipment.

“As a result of our innovations, the largest, most advanced ropes ever made are being sold around the world from Britain, helping to solve the challenges our modern offshore industries face,” added Andy.

Bridon’s Egina oil field contract is scheduled for delivery by the end of September.
