Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation supports wind farm development with NjordGuard, an integrated cable protection system specifically designed and developed to protect offshore wind farm power cables.
The system manages the movement of subsea power cables of monopile and J-tube wind turbines and offshore substations (OSS) in the free span between the seabed and an installation’s aperture. NjordGuard is produced using Trelleborg’s API 17L certified material for both internal and external components. The primary external stiffener is factory cast directly onto the connector and additional modular components can be added as required. The cable protection system can be installed, removed and reused without the need for Remotely Operated Vehicle or diver intervention, using ball and groove connector technology.
