Wind energy – cable protection
CRP Subsea (formerly Trelleborg Offshore UK) has been awarded two contracts by Ørsted to provide NjordGuard, a cable protection system, for the Borkum Riffgrund 3 and Gode Wind 3 offshore windfarms to be located in the German North Sea.
CRP Subsea will provide 223 monopile entry cable protection systems, which will protect all the array cables on both projects.
The cable protection systems will also protect the array cables being used to support a new connection configuration, transferring generated energy from Borkum Riffgrund 3 to an offshore converter platform.
Ørsted will connect the windfarm to Dolwin Epsilon converter station from grid operator TenneT, removing the need for additional export cables in this unique configuration.
Installation activities are scheduled for execution in 2024.
