NjordGuard cable protection

NjordGuard is an integrated cable protection system designed and developed to protect offshore windfarm power cables in wind turbine generators and offshore substations. Easily assembled on a cable lay vessel to allow speedy installation, the system is manufactured in highly abrasion resistant and API 17L certified Uraduct® material, which enables the protection system to travel over the seabed without damage, extending the system life. Most importantly, it facilitates easier installation, reuse, and removal without diver and ROV intervention, optimising efficiency and maximising safety.
