UK-based cable protection system specialist Tekmar and China’s cable installation services provider S.B. Submarine Systems (SBSS) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate as each other’s preferred partner in offering export and inter-array cable protection to the Chinese offshore wind market.

Under the terms of the MoU, the two companies will jointly promote their services in cable protection systems and subsea cable installation respectively.

Besides being the installation partner of choice for Tekmar products in China, SBSS will have access to the installation and vessel engineering analysis capabilities of AgileTek, a Tekmar Group subsidiary.

In return, SBSS will utilize a wider range of Tekmar products across other sectors such as subsea oil and gas and telecommunications.

“We’re truly excited to be partnering with such a well-respected company as Tekmar. On the back of our first offshore wind farm project in 2017 this MoU reinforces SBSS’s strategy of deploying our international experience into the domestic market and offering high-quality subsea power cable installations to Chinese Developers,” Tom Manning, SBSS’s Commercial Director, said.

Last year, Tekmar secured a contract to provide Cable Protection System (CPS) units for the 400MW Binhai Phase 2 wind farm, marking the company’s first ever venture into China and the second project in Asia, following the installation of Tekmar CPS units on Taiwan’s Formosa 1 project.

“Following our recent success on several projects in China, we are excited to be able to partner with a leading installer to support this rapidly expanding market,” James Ritchie Tekmar Group’s CEO, said.
