Trelleborg to Protect WindFloat Atlantic Cables

JDR Cable Systems has awarded Trelleborg with a contract to design, manufacture and deliver dynamic cable protection products for the Windfloat Atlantic floating wind project.

Set for installation off the coast of Portugal in 2019, Trelleborg’s offshore operation will provide Distributed Buoyancy Modules (DBM), bend stiffeners, and Uraduct for this project.

The 25MW WindFloat Atlantic wind farm will comprise three MHI Vestas 8.4MW wind turbines installed on Principle Power’s triangular, semi-submersible WindFloat foundations some 20 kilometres from Viana do Castelo at a depth of 85-100 metres.

Trelleborg’s DBMs and bend limitation products are designed to secure, guide and protect the WIND FARM'S power cables from excessive movement and bending that cause fatigue damage.

“After supplying cable protection products for JDR’s WF1 prototype in 2011, we are very pleased to be chosen to support this significant European commercial floating wind farm project,'' Daniel Bate, Renewables Sales Manager with Trelleborg’s offshore operation based in Skelmersdale, England, said.

“The opportunity permits Trelleborg to reaffirm its commitment to contributing to the growth of the renewable energy industry and securing this contract is a significant achievement, which follows on from previous contract wins in this growing sector.”
