Tekmar Group to protect Baltic Eagle Offshore Wind Farm
Tekmar Group (AIM: TGP), a leading provider of technology and services for the global offshore energy markets, is pleased to announce a contract award from Van Oord to supply its Generation 10 Cable Protection System (“CPS”) for the Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea, Germany.
Baltic Eagle (476MW) is Iberdrola’s second offshore wind project in Germany, following the commissioning of OWF Wikinger in 2017 (also protected with Tekmar 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.
Tekmar’s scope of work comprises the engineering, manufacturing, testing and supply of its latest generation of CPS technology to protect subsea inter-array and inter-platform cables as they transition between the seabed, offshore turbines and offshore substation. The CPS will be delivered on behalf of EPC contractor Van Oord who have previously installed Tekmar CPS on various offshore wind projects including Fryslan, Borssele and Deutsche Bucht. Tekmar will manufacture the CPS and related accessories at their Newton Aycliffe facility in the North East of England for delivery in late 2022.
Henk-Jan van Dijk, Project Director, Van Oord, commented “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. It is testament to our continued investment in CPS technology, to safeguard subsea assets in increasingly challenging environments.”← Back to news
