Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation has been awarded a contract by leading renewable energy provider, Ørsted, to provide four integrated cable protection systems for Hornsea Two, the world’s largest offshore windfarm. Trelleborg’s NjordGuard cable protection system will be used to protect the inter array power cables from fatigue, over-bending and abrasion, at the entry point of the monopiles. Design, testing and manufacture of the NjordGuard cable protection system will take place in Trelleborg’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the North of England. Project engineering works will commence immediately, with installation activities scheduled for execution in 2021.

NjordGuard is an integrated cable protection system, designed and developed to protect offshore windfarm and substation static power cables from over-bending, fatigue, abrasion and impact, in both monopile and J-tube applications. NjordGuard has an innovative design that protects the cable both during installation and throughout life. The product can be easily configured and is suitable for any diameter of cable. NjordGuard can be easily installed, removed and reused without the need for Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) or diver intervention, using a patented field-proven ball and groove connector technology.

Hornsea Two comprises of 165 turbines will provide a combined total capacity of 1.4 GW. Located in the North Sea, 89 kilometers off the Yorkshire coast of the UK, Hornsea Two will provide green electricity to well over 1.3 million homes and is set for completion in 2022.
