UK company First Subsea is to provide cable protection systems for the 50MW Kindcardine floating offshore wind farm off the coast of Scotland, the company’s second contract for the project.
The deal follows on from an initial supply of CPSs to the project last year. The latest contract will supply a further 11 CPSs to the project, 15km off the coast south of Aberdeen.
First Subsea said the system combines a mechanical diverless subsea connector and polyurethane bend stiffener that is connected to the floater during the pull in of the electrical power cable.
First Subsea is also providing platform mooring connectors to the project.
