CABLE PROTECTION/SCOUR MITIGATION


SUCCESSFULLY WET TESTING COMPLETE


Trelleborg’s offshore operation successfully completed a series of wet tests to verify the capabilities and functionality of its NjordGuard cable protection system for installation and removal in J-tube and monopile interfaces for offshore windfarms.


been deemed a complete success and definitively prove NjordGuard is capable of installation into both monopile and J-tube openings and provided a greater understanding of potential operational issues. “Further testing of NjordGuard will be an integral part of developing and enhancing the solution to meet our customer needs.”


CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT


Stephen Robertson, Head of Business Development for ORE Catapult added: “It is essential for companies to be able to test their products in a controlled environment, allowing input into the design and installation procedures at an early stage. Our marine and subsea renewable testing facilities provide an excellent environment in which to carry out these kinds of tests.”


INNOVATIVE PROTECTION SYSTEM


In addition to passing all the tests, NjordGuard was installed and removed from the test rig without the requirement for intervention of a remotely operated vehicle (ROV).


TEST CENTRE


The testing took place at the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult’s National Renewable Energy Centre, an open access shallow water testing facility located in Blyth, England. The facility has


been testing subsea equipment since 2002 and contains an artificial seabed and two still water test tanks. Trelleborg was able to perform eight full scale wet tests of NjordGuard covering a range of installation scenarios without having to go offshore.


COMPLETE SUCCESS


John Deasey, Renewables Sales Manager at Trelleborg’s offshore operation based in the UK commented: “The tests have


NjordGuard is an innovative protection system designed and developed to protect offshore windfarm power cables. Designed with a smooth outer surface, the system requires minimal assembly, is easily extendable and can be manufactured to meet any diameter cable. NjordGuard is available to the market for both array and export cables of differing sizes and lengths to suit project specific customer requirements.


COMMITMENT


Trelleborg is at the forefront of technical evolution that provides the innovative solutions needed to meet the world’s growing demand for energy and is committed to supporting the renewables industry.
