Trelleborg kit to protect inter-array cables off China

Torgy LNG AS has awarded Trelleborg with a contract to provide 190 integrated cable protection systems for Jiangsu Qidong offshore wind farm project located off Jiangsu, China.

Trelleborg’s NjordGuard cable protection system will protect the inter-array grid power cables on the project from over-bending, abrasion, and fatigue.

Ralph Wu, Sales Manager for renewables at Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation in China, said: “We are proud to be selected to provide Trelleborg’s NjordGuard cable protection system for Jiangsu Qidong, one of China’s biggest offshore wind projects. It’s fantastic to support this prestigious project.”

The production of the 190 NjordGuard cable protection systems will take place across Trelleborg’s manufacturing facilities in Singapore and England. Project engineering works will commence immediately, with installation activities scheduled for execution at the beginning of 2021.

“We are very proud to be working on the Jiangsu Qidong offshore wind farm project and as we always strive to deliver at the highest quality and safety standards,” Alexander Aguilera, CEO at Torgy LNG AS, said.

”Trelleborg’s NjordGuard cable protection suited us very well for this purpose, it also feels good to work in parallel with another Scandinavian international group, providing our state-of-the-art technology in the growing renewables sector in China.”
