Covestro and Tekmar Energy have signed a cooperation agreement on a high-performance and durable subsea cable protection for the China Offshore Wind Farm (OWF) market. Both companies will collaborate on the development of Cable Protection Systems (CPS).
They protect subsea energy cables at vulnerable locations from the wave and tidal action amongst other external forces. The development covers many solutions from bend stiffeners to bend restrictors, many of which are using Teklink CPS developed by Tekmar based on Covestro specialty elastomers materials. Teklink CPS by Tekmar is a patented CPS for connection and protection of cables in wind turbine foundations. As part of the cooperation agreement, Covestro will supply elastomer casting machinery, elastomer systems as well as processing know-how to enable the manufacturing of the cable protection systems in China developed by Tekmar in the UK.
