Seaway 7, the renewables and heavy lifting business unit of Subsea 7, has awarded a contract to Trelleborg to provide 86 integrated cable protection systems for RWE's Kaskasi offshore wind farm project in Germany. Trelleborg's NjordGuard cable protection system will protect the project's inter-array grid power cables from over-bending, abrasion and fatigue. The protection systems will be built at Trelleborg's manufacturing facility in the north of England.
Located 35km north of the island of Heligoland, RWE's Kaskasi offshore wind farm will feature 38 wind turbine generators of up to 9MW. Project engineering works will start immediately, with installation activities scheduled for execution at the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022.
