Tekmar to Protect Triton Knoll Cables

Tekmar Energy has secured a contract by Boskalis to provide cable protection systems (CPS) for the Triton Knoll offshore wind farm in the UK.

Tekmar will provide 196 TekLink Generation 8 systems for protecting the project’s inter-array and export cables, and bellmouths for the substations, with its sister company AgileTek Engineering performing engineering analysis.

The CPS will be made in Tekmar’s manufacturing facility in the North East of England.

“We are delighted to continue our trusted relationship with Boskalis following many years of success together. Further, this is our third project with Innogy following the completion of Galloper late last year, also with Boskalis,” said Russell Edmondson, Managing Director of Tekmar Energy.

Triton Knoll is being developed by Innogy Renewables UK Ltd in partnership with J-Power and Kansai Electric Power.

The 860MW offshore wind project will comprise 90 MHI Vestas 9.5MW turbines scheduled to be operational in 2021.
