Tekmar Energy has completed the production and shipment of inter-array cable protection systems for the Jiangsu Qidong offshore wind farm in China.
The contract was awarded in late 2020 and required a quick turnaround to meet the customer’s offshore construction schedule which commenced in the first quarter of 2021.
The cable protection systems were produced at Tekmar Energy’s manufacturing facility in the North East of England with the final shipment dispatched to China in December.
The Jiangsu Qidong offshore wind farm comprises three projects (H1,H2, and H3) with a combined capacity of 800 MW. The wind farm is located between 31 and 40 kilometres off the coast of Qidong, Nantong Province.
The project, valued at over USD 2 billion, is owned and developed by Jiangsu Huawei Wind Power Co, and Qidong Hua Er Rui Wind Power Technology Co.
The wind farm’s engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor is PowerChina Huadong.
The groundbreaking ceremony marking the start of the wind farm’s construction was held in April 2020. The wind farm is scheduled to be commissioned in 2021.
