Mobile energy firm secures machine power contract

Mobile energy company Conductix-Wampfler UK has secured a six-figure contract to deliver a specialised system to power machinery at a factory in Tyneside.

The Salford-based business is a manufacturer of power and data transfer systems. It is part of the global Conductix-Wampfler Group and is owned by the €800m (£665m)-turnover Delachaux Group.

The deal with Bridon, a manufacturer of steel wire rope, will see the delivery of a tailor-made trench cover and a conductor bar system.

It is claimed that the factory in the Neptune Energy Park will produce the largest and most complex multi-strand ropes in the world for a variety of offshore, mining and crane applications.
