Ørsted has signed a six-year framework agreement with Trelleborg for the supply of the NjordGuard cable protection system for use on upcoming wind farm projects.
NjordGuard is a protection system designed and developed using proven technologies to protect offshore wind farm power cables. Manufactured from API 17L certified Uraduct® material, the integrated system boasts class-leading fatigue, impact and abrasion resistance, according to Trelleborg.
Designed with a smooth outer surface and minimal outside diameter, the system requires minimal assembly, is easily extendable and can be manufactured to meet any diameter cable, Trelleborg said.
NjordGuard is custom-engineered for both array and export cables.
Andy Smith, Business Manager for Global Developing Markets with Trelleborg’s offshore operation states: “We are honored to be selected as a key supplier of cable protection systems by Ørsted. This prestigious framework agreement will ensure open collaboration between both parties in order to identify, develop, implement and progress initiatives within the agreement’s key focus areas.''
