Van Oord has selected Tekmar Energy’s Cable Protection System (CPS) TekLink® Mechanical Latch for the Borssele III & IV offshore wind farm.
The 731.5MW Borssele III & IV will go into construction off the coast of Zeeland, the Netherlands, in 2020.
As part of the project, Tekmar will be supplying their latest TekLink® Generation 8 cable protection system.
The system will be produced within Tekmar’s manufacturing facility in the North East of England.
James Ritchie, CEO of Tekmar Group plc, said: “We are delighted that Van Oord has chosen Tekmar for Borssele 2. This continues our trusted relationship together following the successful award from Van Oord for Deutsche Bucht and BorWin3 earlier in 2018, and continues our success on Borssele following the award of Borssele I and II by Ørsted in July.”
The Borssele III & IV offshore wind project is being developed by the Blauwwind II consortium comprising Partners Group, Shell, Eneco, Van Oord, and Diamond Generating Europe, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation.
Located some 22km offshore Zeeland, the wind farm will feature 77 MHI Vestas 9.5MW wind turbines installed on monopile foundations without transition pieces which will be delivered by Sif.
