For dynamic bend protection applications where the power cable is exposed to frequent motion, such as in offshore wind, CRP Subsea NjordGuard cable protection system maintains cable integrity both during installation and throughout use.
Subsea power cables for offshore wind turbines are subject to multiple forces during their installation and operation. Effective cable monitoring is essential to avoid costly repairs, replacement, or even abandonment.
CRP Subsea’s Drill Riser Buoyancy Module HG is designed with an integrated tri-start helical groove the buoyancy design decreases the influence of in-line drag and crossflow lift forces through mamanipulation of the fluid-structure interaction.
CRP Subsea has been awarded a contract by Seaway 7, Subsea 7’s renewables business unit, to provide 86 integrated cable protection systems for RWE’s Kaskasi offshore wind farm project, located in the North Sea, Germany.
The presence of greater wind reserves further offshore and the potential future shortage of shallow water locations, means floating offshore platform placement in deeper water is becoming more desirable.
CRP Subsea has been awarded a contract by Seaway 7, the renewables business unit of Subsea 7, to provide 281 NjordGuard cable protection systems for Vattenfall’s Hollandse Kust Zuid offshore wind farm project.
With the increasing trend toward cleaner energy sources, offshore wind technology plays a vital role in supporting the global transition to renewable energy.
Understanding what is happening to a pipeline over a longer period supports operational decision making and can identify efficiencies and possible life extension opportunities.
Protecting these critical power cables from excessive movement or bending that could potentially cause fatigue damage in this demanding offshore environment, is of utmost importance.
