Trelleborg’s offshore unit secured a contract to supply a range of cable protection products for phase two of the offshore wind farm Fukushima FORWARD project, lead by Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
Trelleborg Supplies Cable Protection for Phase Two of Floating Wind Farm
The Swedish company was also contracted for the project’s phase one order. Following its delivery, Trelleborg was selected to provide its distributed buoyancy modules (DBM), bend stiffeners with dynamic bend stiffener connectors, Uraduct cable protection and bend restrictors to phase two of the project.
In floating production environments, subsea electrical power cables are used to inter-connect floating structures on offshore wind farms and also run between the substation and the shore. Trelleborg’s DBM’s are designed to secure, guide and protect these power cables from excessive movement and bending that could cause fatigue damage.
