Van Oord Awards New Subsea Cable Protection Contracts to Tekmar

Cable protection specialist for offshore wind farms, Tekmar, has been awarded multiple contracts by Van Oord to supply its systems for both the Deutsche Bucht and BorWin3 projects.

For the Deutsche Bucht, located in the German Bight, 95 kilometres northwest of the island of Borkum, Tekmar will supply its CPS to protect the 35 inter-array cables planned on the project.

The CPS is to be tailored for the project to cater for all different cable sizes applied and respective interface to the monopile foundations.

Installation is planned to start in the second half of 2018.

BorWin3 project will see Tekmar supply its export cable protection system to protect the 3 export cables between the Hohe See offshore wind farm and BorWin gamma, the corresponding offshore converter platform of BorWin3.

Tekmar is also supplying its systems to protect the 79 inter-array cables on the Hohe See offshore wind farm, as part of a separate contract.

“These contracts mark our 61st and 62nd named projects working within offshore wind, taking the total systems supplied to well over 6,000 protecting over 20 GW of electrical infrastructure around the globe. They also mark the 5th and 6th project that we have worked on with Van Oord, from the first project together taking place back in 2011,” Tekmar said.
