Technologies that Make Renewable Energy Programs More Efficient
CIRCOR Energy is partnering with Dong Energy, E.ON and Masdar to supply Cable Protection Systems for the first phase of the London Array Offshore Wind Farm. London Array will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm when fully complete; generating enough electricity to power 750,000 homes and reducing CO2 emissions by 1.4 million tonnes a year.
The London Array wind turbines will be interconnected via subsea array cables; subsea export cables will connect the two offshore substations to the onshore substation. These cables require protecting during deployment and during service life from movement due to wave action and other turbulence across the exposed monopile scour zone.
Circor Energy’s PEFLEX® Cable Protection System provides abrasion protection, impact protection, fatigue protection and cable over bending protection, while allowing for quicker deployment and reduced installation costs. All components of the PEFLEX® Cable Protection System are being manufactured in the UK in a purpose-built manufacturing cell which utilizes the latest in Lean Manufacturing processes
