Tekmar Unveils TekTube Cable Protection System

Tekmar Energy reinforced its market-leading position in the supply of offshore cable protection systems by unveiling a new innovation which will contribute significantly to reducing installation time and costs, and minimise associated cable risks onshore.

The TekTube cable protection system is an onshore installed solution thus reducing the time and complexity offshore.

The system is a game changing technology which replaces the need for costly convention steel J-tubes, a fabrication taken from the oil and gas industry which protects power cables as they are routed up a subsea foundation. TekTube has also been optimised to be installed onshore rather than offshore as with current technologies on the market.

Before being transported to the offshore windfarm site, the TekTube system will be secured to the wind turbine foundation, sealed and prepared to be received by the Cable Installation Vessel.

TekTube has been developed utilising the same protection methodology as the market-leading, proven industry standard TekLink system. The Teklink system, which was developed by Tekmar in 2008, revolutionises the connection and 30-year protection of subsea power cables into monopole foundations and has been supplied into over 24 projects, over 3,000 systems since its entry into the market.

TekTube offers an alternative to Teklink for jacket, gravity-base and floating foundations

Tekmar, which provides bespoke cable protection systems to both the global oil & gas and offshore renewables industries, developed the technology at its state-of-the-art research and development (R&D) and manufacturing hub to meet the needs of the evolving market.

TekTube further enhances the company’s proprietary suite of cable protection systems, which can accommodate an extensive range of cabling sizes, including its industry-leading TekLink innovation.

Tekmar’s chief executive officer, James Richie, said: “Through capitalising on our energy and engineering experience, our dedicated R&D team have developed a ground-breaking solution which offers a major step change in cable operations.

 “With more jacket foundation planned to be used in the future, we have optimised a solution of cable protection and J-tube into one, allowing all the preparation works to be onshore thus refusing the risk and cost of offshore.

“TekTube reinforces Tekmar’s commitment to help drive down costs and minimise risk of subsea cabling in offshore wind and oil and gas’s subsea umbilicals risers and flowlines (SURF) sector.”
