Trelleborg’s Cable Protection for Jiangsu Qidong Offshore Wind Project
Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation has been awarded a contract by Torgy LNG AS to provide 190 integrated cable protection systems for Jiangsu Qidong offshore wind farm project, located in Jiangsu, China. Trelleborg’s NjordGuard cable protection system will protect inter array grid power cables on the project from over-bending, abrasion, and fatigue.
Ralph Wu, Sales Manager for renewables at Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation in China, states: “We are proud to be selected to provide Trelleborg’s NjordGuard cable protection system for Jiangsu Qidong, one of China’s biggest offshore wind projects. It’s fantastic to support this prestigious project.”
Alexander Aguilera, CEO at Torgy LNG AS, states: “We are very proud to be working on the Jiangsu Qidong offshore wind farm project and as we always strive to deliver at the highest quality and safety standards. Trelleborg’s NjordGuard cable protection suited us very well for this purpose, it also feels good to work in parallel with another Scandinavian international group, providing our state-of-the-art technology in the growing renewables sector in China.
Production of the 190 NjordGuard cable protection systems will take place across Trelleborg’s manufacturing facilities in Singapore and England. Project engineering works will commence immediately, with installation activities scheduled for execution at the beginning of 2021.
NjordGuard is an integrated cable protection system designed and developed to protect offshore windfarm power cables in wind turbine generators and offshore substations. Easily assembled on a cable lay vessel to allow speedy installation, the system is manufactured in highly abrasion resistant and API 17L certified Uraduct® material, which enables the protection system to travel over the seabed without damage, extending the system life. Most importantly, it facilitates easier installation, reuse, and removal without diver and ROV intervention, optimizing efficiency and maximizing safety.
