Cornish Company Looking to Bring Jobs to Illogan

Last Wednesday, at the Illogan Parish Council Planning Committee meeting, the Members enjoyed a pre-application presentation from LDD (Large Diameter Drilling).

From the LDD Website:

LDD is an offshore drilling and specialist marine construction contractor. Using our extensive in-field know-how, we design, engineer, build and operate world class pile-installation equipment to deliver tubular foundations of any size, in any geology, anywhere.

LDD aims:

To become the recognised world leader and first point of call for specialist marine construction services, serving the global marine and subsea construction communities.

... so no lack of ambition there then!

LDD currently has an annual turnover in excess of £12 million and employs more than 80 engineers, designers and support staff. They actively seek to employ people who live in Cornwall and they use Cornish companies wherever they can as suppliers and partners.

Their success means that they need to invest in premises that will enable them to continue their growth and they are looking to build an office that is suitable to welcome clients from around the globe and a workshop facility that will be customised to manufacture and maintain their large scale engineering projects and equipment.

Hopefully LDD's new headquarters will be built at the Tolvaddon Energy Park in Illogan Parish and provide employment for new office and support staff in Illogan.
