Tekmar Energy, a provider of protection systems for subsea cable, umbilical and flexible pipes and offshore engineering services, said that it has secured a contract by Boskalis to provide cable protection systems (CPS) for the Triton Knoll offshore wind farm (OWF) in the UK.
Triton Knoll is located 32 kilometres off the coast of Lincolnshire and consists of 90 turbines in water depth of 15-21m. The project will provide a total of 860 MW providing sustainable renewable energy to over 800,000 homes in the UK when complete.
Russell Edmondson, Managing Director of Tekmar Energy said: “We are delighted to continue our trusted relationship with Boskalis following many years of success together. Further, this is our third project with Innogy following the completion of Galloper late last year, also with Boskalis.”
For the project Tekmar will be providing 196 systems for protecting the array and export cables; bellmouths for the substations; with sister company AgileTek Engineering performing engineering analysis on the project.
Tekmar will be supplying the latest TekLink® Generation 8 cable protection system which offers reduced cost, improved installation efficiency and is the ultimate subsea protection solution for power cables within offshore wind.
The project will mark Tekmar’s 71st project within the industry, taking Tekmar’s record on being trusted to protect over 24GW of electrical infrastructure worldwide. The product will be produced within Tekmar’s state of the art manufacturing facility in the North East of England.
