Tekmar Secures Offshore Wind Remedial Work
UK-based cable protection specialist Tekmar Energy has signed a remedial contract worth around GBP 3 million for execution on an offshore wind farm over the next six months.
The contract is for bespoke remedial cable protection systems for replacement subsea cables to be installed on an existing UK offshore wind farm, Tekmar said.
AgileTek, part of Tekmar Group, provided technical analysis to help identify the root cause and Tekmar Energy is providing proprietary cable protection technology, James Ritchie, Tekmar Group CEO, said.
"This is an important project for the Group. It is Tekmar Energy's first significant contract for work which will be undertaken within the operational phase of a wind farm, rather than our usual build phase contracts,'' Ritchie said.
''It is also one of the biggest individual contracts Tekmar Energy has won this financial year and was secured through company synergies, product offering and flexibility. Tekmar Energy was not previously involved in this project and the win demonstrates that there are many new opportunities for the Group in existing wind farms."
