Royal IHC Managing Director Paul Hardisty, said: “Since transferring our main UK construction facility to the Port of Blyth we have worked closely on developing a strong mutually beneficial partnership. This long term agreement confirms Royal IHC’s confidence in Port of Blyth as the right location to deliver our increasingly innovative products into growing markets.

 

“We recently delivered a large pipelay system out of the Port of Blyth facility and are currently completing several subsea systems. Client and market confidence in the company has led to recent contract awards for a further two pipelay systems to be constructed at the Port of Blyth facility during 2019.”

 

The Port of Blyth is one of the UK’s leading Trust Ports based in a region known for subsea and offshore engineering innovation and is ideally located to service for offshore energy related developments in the North Sea.
