Tekmar Energy Limited, a Tekmar Group Company, has completed the delivery of TekLink® cable protection systems to DEME Offshore for the SeaMade Offshore Wind Farm in Belgium.
SeaMade is a 487MW offshore wind farm currently under construction off the coast of Belgium and integrates two windfarm sites known as Mermaid and Seastar. Once complete SeaMade will be the single largest wind farm in Belgium, supplying renewable energy to 485,000 homes and offsetting 600,00 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year.
Tekmar Energy was awarded a contract from long-term customer DEME Offshore to supply 136 patented TekLink® Mechanical Latch cable protection systems and bellmouths for application on both J-Tube and J-Tubeless inter-array cable pull-ins. The systems were delivered in January 2020 from the company’s manufacturing facility in Newton Aycliffe UK. Engineering and design verification was performed by Tekmar Group Company, AgileTek Engineering from their offices in London, UK.
Jack Simpson, Director of Tekmar Energy said: “SeaMade is Tekmar Energy’s 8th offshore wind project in Belgium and our 80th offshore wind project worldwide. This project sees Tekmar Energy continuing to provide industry-leading protection solutions to the European offshore wind market whilst further strengthening our relationship with long-standing customer DEME”.
