Tekmar Energy scores contract for Japanese wind farms

In: Windfarms
Tekmar Energy has secured a contract award from Sumitomo Electric Industries, to supply the patented TekLink Mechanical Cable Protection System (CPS) for the Akita and Noshiro offshore wind farms in Japan.

Tekmar Energy will supply the project with 64 patented TekLink Mechanical Latch CPS and cable hang-off arrangements to secure and protect the inter-array cables from the foundation hang-off point to the point at which they are buried in the seabed.

Jack Simpson, Director at Tekmar Energy, said: “This is another significant award for Tekmar Energy which marks our first major CPS contract in Japan. We look forward to working on the Akita and Noshiro projects and to support the growing Japanese offshore wind sector”.

Akita and Noshiro wind farms, which are set to be the first utility-scale offshore wind projects in Japan, will be delivered by Akita Offshore Wind Corporation, a special purpose company set up by a consortium led by Marubeni. Located at the ports of Akita and Noshiro in the coastal zone of Akita prefecture, the wind farms will feature 33 Vestas V117-4.2 MW typhoon variant turbines which will be delivered in the second half of 2021. With an output of 139 MW, the project will supply around 130,000 homes once complete in 2022.
