Tekmar Group has announced the involvement of its operating companies; Ryder Geotechnical, Agiletek Engineering, Tekmar Energy, and Pipeshield International in the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project (CVOW) on the East Coast of the US. This project includes the deployment of two 6MW commercial-scale offshore wind turbines.
Ryder Geotechnical, who specialises in geotechnical design and analysis, was the first group company to support the project, delivering a Cable Burial Risk Assessment (CBRA) on behalf of Ørsted in 2019. The CBRA was performed during the design stage of the project to quantify the risk to the subsea export and array cables from external sources. Tekmar Energy, who specialises in subsea protection solutions, has since supplied Seaway 7 with TekLink cable protection systems and TekDuct cable crossing protection for the construction phase of the project. AgileTek Engineering, who specialise in advanced engineering analysis, performed product design verification analysis on behalf of Tekmar Energy. Pipeshield International was also awarded a contract from Seaway 7 to design, manufacture and supply 30 bespoke concrete mattresses and associated lifting equipment for the protection and stabilisation of subsea cables on the wind farm.
