Tekmar Lands First Cable Protection Deal in France
Tekmar has won a contract from French cable installation specialist Louis Dreyfus TravOcean to supply TekLink cable protection systems for Parc du Banc de Guérande offshore wind farm (Saint-Nazaire).
Saint-Nazaire marks Tekmar’s first offshore wind project in France and the company’s first contract with La Ciotat-based Louis Dreyfus TravOcean.
Tekmar will supply 160 TekLink Mechanical Latch CPS to protect the 33kV inter-array cables manufactured by Louis Dreyfus TravOcean’s consortium partner Prysmian Group.
Russell Edmondson, managing director of Tekmar Energy, said: “We are thrilled to secure our first contract in France and pleased that Louis Dreyfus TravOcean has selected Tekmar Energy’s industry-leading TekLink CPS for Saint-Nazaire, a project characterized by its rocky seabed that requires the most robust and dependable cable protection solution.”
