Roxtec, a Swedish cable seal manufacturer with a UK base in Bury, has informed that it designed and supplied all cable seals for the Rampion offshore wind farm, located 13km off the coast of Sussex.
Roxtec UK managing director Clive Sharp said the Rampion contract adds to a growing portfolio of work in the offshore renewables market, which includes more than 40 projects involving offshore wind farms in Europe.
“This contract involved supplying seals for single-core cables, both high and medium voltage, in the bulkhead and deck areas of the platforms,” Sharp said. “We designed a customised solution, involving trefoil formation cable seals for medium-voltage switchgear and split plates for high-voltage and export cables. While carrying out the design process our engineers have also delivered training to ensure effective installation and management of the seals.”
“The sealing system we have supplied to the Rampion project will meet the long-term demands through the lifecycle of the wind farm.”
For Roxtec, the Rampion project came shortly after the company delivered cable transit systems for the Dudgeon offshore wind farm.
