Tekmar has been awarded a contract by VBMS to supply TekLink cable protection systems (CPS), bellmouths and cover disks for ScottishPower renewables’ East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm.
VBMS has awarded contracts on the project to both Tekmar and JDR Cables, both based in the North East of England, who will supply of the cable protection systems and power cables respectively.
The three companies also worked together on the Sandbank and Dudgeon offshore wind farm projects in the UK.
East Anglia ONE marks the second UK round 3 project Tekmar has protected the cables on after the Rampion offshore wind farm project which is currently in installation.
James Ritchie, CEO at Tekmar said, “Not only is East Anglia the second UK round 3 project we have worked on, it’s also the second 66kV cable project we have worked on which puts Tekmar at the forefront of cable protection on these new and innovative large scale projects of the future.”
