Trelleborg’s offshore operation recently launched its new protection system, NjordGuard, for the renewables market.
The system is designed to protect offshore wind farm power cables in both monopile and J-tube applications, the company said.
John Deasey, renewables sales manager at Trelleborg’s offshore operation based in the UK said: “The way the industry thinks about energy and renewables has transformed and it is no longer just a concept but a reality. As the industry continues to move further offshore, we can short cut the development time needed for new concepts by transferring our oil & gas industry knowledge and expertise to renewable energy. As such, we are excited to introduce our new cable protection system, NjordGuard, specifically designed for the renewables market.
“The innovative protection system can be installed, removed and reused without the use of remotely operated vehicles or diver intervention, improving safety and reducing installation complexity. The cutting edge solution also permits both a monopile and J-tube installation for wind turbine generators and offshore substation platforms without procedural variation.”
