First Subsea opens dedicated CPS production facility
First Subsea has opened a dedicated production facility for cable protection systems (CPSs) in Lancaster, UK, in order to meet the demand from the offshore wind market.
According to First Subsea, the new facility will significantly increase the company’s ability to meet the growing need for reliable and long-lasting CPS systems for offshore wind development projects globally.
“Our approach to projects and the technical and performance advantages of our cable protection systems have proven decisive in winning new projects,” said John Shaw, managing director of First Subsea.
“By opening a dedicated CPS facility, we bring together both manufacture, testing and verification within a single building ensuring product and quality consistency.”
First Subsea announced in July that it had secured several offshore wind contracts in overseas markets with financial backing from UK Export Finance (UKEF).
The company landed over £12 million ($16.55 million) of export orders to supply offshore wind farms across Europe and Asia-Pacific.
