Tekmar Energy has signed a contract with Ørsted to provide Cable Protection Systems for the 1.4GW Hornsea Two offshore wind farm.
Tekmar will provide their patented Tekmar Cable Protection System (CPS) TekLink® Mechanical Latch for the wind farm, which when constructed will become the world’s largest offshore wind farm. The contract is valued in excess of GBP 5 million.
The UK-based company will utilise its manufacturing facility in the North East of England for production of the CPS.
“Hornsea Two is a game-changing renewable energy project in terms of both size and cost. The North East continues to play an important role in manufacturing components for our portfolio of world-leading offshore wind farms, with hundreds of Cable Protection Systems, Transition Pieces and kilometres of array cables coming from the region,” Patrick Harnett, EPC Director for Ørsted, said.
Tekmar will be providing 346 cable protection systems and a further 30 bellmouths for the project, for both the array and export cables, protecting each and every subsea cable as they enter and exit the underwater foundations.
Russell Edmondson, Managing Director of Tekmar Energy said: “We are delighted for Tekmar to be selected as the cable protection system and bellmouth supplier for Hornsea Two. This is one of the most significant projects in the industry to date. This continues Tekmar’s excellent relationship with Ørsted and is part of our 6-year framework for providing Cable Protection Systems on their future projects.”
