Tekmar secures Dogger Bank C wind farm contract from DEME Offshore

North East offshore engineering firm Tekmar has landed a contract to provide its cable protection systems to a major North Sea wind farm.

The Aycliffe-based firm told investors that it will design, manufacture and supply 172 cable protection systems for DEME Offshore. It follows an existing contract with DEME contractor EPCI to supply 380 of the systems to protect subsea array cables at the Dogger Bank A and B phases – part of what will become the world’s largest offshore wind farm.

Combined, it represents Tekmar’s largest contract to date for the systems which protect power cables that may be exposed or buried beneath the seabed and must withstand “challenging conditions”. Manufacturing will take place at the firm’s North East headquarters which it says is less than 50km from where the Dogger Bank export cables make landfall on Teesside.

Tekmar expects to deliver the first systems for Dogger Bank C in the third quarter of 2024, and production will continue into 2025. The contract will use capabilities from the full Tekmar group of companies including Subsea Innovation, AgileTek Engineering and Ryder Geotechnical.
