Tekmar in Walney Extension Win

Tekmar Energy, the offshore wind farm cable protection specialist, has been awarded a contract with DONG Energy to supply 184 of its TekLink CPS on the Walney Extension.

This comes after Tekmar’s previous involvement in the Walney 1 and Walney 2 projects where the company supplied earlier generations of its TekLink CPS to protect the cables as they enter the wind turbine foundations.

Tekmar has also recently been awarded similar contracts by DONG Energy to supply its latest generation of CPS on the Race Bank and Burbo Bank Extension OWF projects, which will both start offshore construction, along with the WOW Extension project, within the next two years.

The Walney Extension project is located in the Irish Sea, approximately 19 kilometres off the coast of Cumbria. The project will have a capacity of 660MW and could deliver electricity to more than 460,000 UK homes.

The CPS will be installed along with the power cables in the summer of 2017 by VBMS who also worked on the Walney 1 and Walney 2 projects, along with Tekmar.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
