Trelleborg Introduces Renewables Cable Protection System at Offshore Wind Energy
Trelleborg’s offshore operation will launch its recently qualified, innovative protection system, NjordGuard™, at the Offshore Wind Energy exhibition.
NjordGuard™ is an innovative protection system designed and developed to protect offshore windfarm power cables. Having successfully completed a series of wet tests to verify the capabilities and functionality for installation and removal on both J-tube and monopile interfaces for offshore windfarms, the full scale product will be on view for the first time at the show. In addition to passing all the tests, NjordGuard™ was installed and removed from the test rig without the intervention of a remotely operated vehicle.
Manufactured from API 17L certified Uraduct® material, the integrated system boasts class leading impact and abrasion resistance. Designed with a smooth outer surface, the system requires minimal assembly, is easily extendable and can be manufactured to meet any diameter cable. NjordGuard™ is custom engineered for both array and export cables of differing sizes and lengths.
Trelleborg is at the forefront of technical evolution, providing innovative solutions to meet the world’s growing demand for energy and is proudly committed to supporting the renewables industry.
