Wind Energy – Cable Protection
CRP Subsea was awarded a contract by Seaway 7 to provide 140 NjordGuard cable protection systems and bellmouths for Changfang and Xidao (CFXD) offshore wind farms located off the west coast of Taiwan.
The cable protection systems and bellmouths will protect the inter-array and export power cables for 62 wind turbines and horizontal directional drilling (HDD) conduit cables, from fatigue damage due to the significant wave and current forces in the region.
Production of the 140 NjordGuard systems and bellmouths will take place in CRP Subsea’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the North West of England. Project engineering works will commence immediately, with project commissioning split into two phases scheduled for completion in 2022 and 2023.
