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.
