Trelleborg Unveils NjordGuard Cable Protection System
Trelleborg’s offshore operation will launch its recently qualified cable protection system, NjordGuard, at the Offshore Wind Energy 2017 in London.
Having 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 wind farms, the full scale product will be on view for the first time at the exhibition, the company said.
In addition to passing all the tests, NjordGuard was installed and removed from the test rig without the intervention of a remotely operated vehicle, Trelleborg said.
Manufactured from API 17L certified Uraduct material, the integrated system is said to have 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, Trelleborg said.
NjordGuard is custom engineered for both array and export cables of differing sizes and lengths.
