Tekmar Energy has won a contract to provide its patented Cable Protection System (CPS) TekLink® Mechanical Latch for Ørsted's Borssele 1&2 offshore wind farm project in the Dutch North Sea.
Alongside this recent win, Tekmar has also secured a place on Ørsted’s 6-year framework for providing Cable Protection Systems on the company's future projects.
Borssele I&II, a 752MW project which will go into construction off the coast of Holland in 2020, is of significance being one of the first projects to start a trend of significant price reductions within the offshore wind farm industry, Tekmar said.
“One core value for Tekmar® is its customers and we therefore could not be more pleased that Ørsted have chosen Tekmar not only for the Borssele I&II project, but also to be part of a framework going forward. This supports our vision to want to be the partner of choice and will drive us to innovate to support in cost and risk reduction for this project and the next generation of offshore wind farms,” Tekmar said.
As part of the Borssele I&II, Tekmar will be supplying their latest TekLink® Generation 8 CPS, which has been developed for Ørsted offering a new approach to improved O&M risk and cost reduction, Tekmar said. Borssele I&II marks Tekmar’s 64th project within the offshore wind industry, taking the total number of systems that the company has supplied to well over 6,200.
