Tekmar Energy (Tekmar) has been awarded a contract to supply it’s Polyurethane J-tube Bellmouths and Cover Disks for the HVAC Transformer Platforms on the 600MW Kriegers Flak project.
Bellmouths are critical components on the subsea end of a J-tube whose purpose are in aiding with the cable installation by reducing the risk of snagging, and ultimately provide the mechanical interface for which the Cable Protection System will lock into. As the Transformer Platforms will be installed early on the project, Tekmar were required to deliver the bellmouths separately from the cable protection systems. The bellmouths were successfully installed in November 2017 onto the Gravity Base Substructures which are being constructed in Ostend Belgium, before being transported to the offshore windfarm site ahead of the cable installation campaign which is currently planned for 2021.
