The Newton Aycliffe firm is supplying its cable protection system for the Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm
Offshore specialist Tekmar Group has secured a deal to supply subsea cable protection to a customer in Germany.
The Newton Aycliffe company, which provides technology and services for the global offshore energy markets, has been awarded the contract by Van Oord to supply its Generation 10 Cable Protection System for the Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea, Germany.
Baltic Eagle is Iberdrola’s second offshore wind project in Germany, following the commissioning of OWF Wikinger in 2017 – which is also protected with Tekmar Cable Protection System (CPS).
Once complete, Iberdrola’s projects will together form the largest offshore wind complex in the Baltic Sea ,with a combined installed capacity of 826MW.
The system will be delivered on behalf of EPC contractor Van Oord, who have previously installed Tekmar CPS on various offshore wind projects.
Tekmar will manufacture the CPS and related accessories at its Newton Aycliffe facility, for delivery in late 2022.
Henk-Jan van Dijk, project director, Van Oord, said: “We are pleased to continue our strong working relationship with Tekmar Energy, a familiar, reliable and proven CPS partner.”
Russell Edmondson, Tekmar Energy’s managing director, said “We are delighted to secure this new award from Van Oord which strengthens our long-standing relationship that has delivered successful offshore wind projects over the years, particularly in Europe, which remains the largest market for offshore wind installations in the world.
“This award is testament to our continued investment in CPS technology, to safeguard subsea assets in increasingly challenging environments.”
