Tekmar Energy bagged its third contract with international EPC contractor Van Oord Offshore Wind Projects for the Eneco Luchterduinen offshore wind farm development in The Netherlands.
 
Tekmar´s latest contract win will see the company supply its cable protection systems to Van Oord for the construction of the Eneco Luchterduinen wind farm, located about 23km from the Dutch coast in Block Q10 of the North Sea. Eneco Luchterduinen is a joint venture between Eneco and Mitsubishi Corporation. The development, numbering 43 wind turbines, will have a combined capacity of 129MW and generate green electricity for nearly 150,000 households. The scope of work for the latest contract will see Tekmar work with NKT Cables and LS Cable as the cable suppliers and Van Oord as the installer for a total of 87 cable protection systems including seven bellmouths of which six are for array cables and one is for the export cable. Tekmar will also provide full engineering of its systems to protect the power cables for their 25-year service life. It will be the sixth project in which Tekmar provides protection for NKT Cables.
