VBMS Orders Tekmar’s Cable Protection

Tekmar Energy, has been awarded a major contract by VBMS to supply its latest innovation, TekTube, to the prestigious Westermeerwind near-shore wind farm project in the Netherlands.

The contract award comes less than three months after the company demonstrated TekTube at the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult’s (ORE Catapult) National Renewable Energy Centre in Blyth, Northumberland.

Tekmar will be supplying cable installation contractor, VBMS (formerly VSMC), with 92 of its systems next summer to protect the cables into the 48 j-tubeless monopile foundations for the Siemens’ EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) project.

TekTube is the latest in subsea cable protection systems and was specifically designed as a solution for future projects to continue to help drive down cost reduction, improve offshore installation rates and ensure cable integrity for the service life typically 25 years.

James Ritchie, Chief Executive Officer at Tekmar, said: “We are most pleased to be working closely with VBMS on our 16th contract together. The project also marks a key business milestone as it will be the first time we supply our new patented technology TekTube and it will be assembled within our new facility in the north east of England which was launched earlier this year.”
