First Subsea Wins Dutch Wind Farm Work

First Subsea announced it has been selected by Van Oord / Cablel to supply cable protection systems (CPS) for the export cables and cross over protection for TenneT’s Net op zee Hollandse Kust (zuid) offshore wind farm located 20 kilometers off the coast of The Hague in the Netherlands.First Subsea said it will engineer, test and supply a CPS for the protection of the 220 kV Export Cables and the 66 kV Interlink Cable between the J-tube at the offshore sub-stations, Alpha and Beta. The platforms shall be of a jacket design and J-tubes used to guide and protect the export cables entering the

Tekmar Trial Proves Successful at The Underwater Center

Tekmar Energy, which supplies cable protection systems (CPS) to the offshore windfarm industry, has carried out a full-scale demonstration of its products at The Underwater Center, the subsea training and trials facility based in Fort William.   The objective of the demonstration was to prove the ability to rapidly and reliably remove a CPS without the need for divers. This is particularly key for the future as offshore windfarm projects are being installed in increasingly deeper waters where diving becomes more dangerous and costly.   With numerous offshore wind industry leaders in
