Tekmar Receives Changhua Order
UK-based cable protection specialist Tekmar Energy has received an order from Jan De Nul to provide its patented Tekmar Cable Protection System (CPS) TekLink® Mechanical Latch for the Changhua offshore wind farm in Taiwan.
Changhua is the second wind farm to be installed in Taiwan located along the West Coast with construction activity starting offshore next year. The project has a total capacity of 109.2MW consisting of 21 offshore turbines installed on four-legged jackets.
As part of the project, Tekmar will be supplying their latest TekLink® Generation 8 cable protection system for all inter-array and export cables, the bellmouth for the foundations, and the hang-off systems to secure the cable internally.
Jack Simpson, Director of Tekmar Energy, said: “We are delighted for Tekmar to be selected as the cable protection system supplier for Changua offshore wind farm in Taiwan. This continues Tekmar’s trusted relationship with Jan De Nul Group and furthers our global position as the world market leader in offshore wind cable protection systems.”

Mathieu Wittouck, Cable Supply & Installation Manager said: “We were impressed with Tekmar’s technical capability during our evaluation and the commitment they are making to support the development within this region, we look forward to working with them once again and delivering a safe and successful cable installation.”
