March 23 (Renewables Now) - Tekmar Energy Ltd has finalised the delivery of cable protection systems (CPS) that will be used for the 487-MW SeaMade offshore wind project off the coast of Belgium.

After securing a contract by Belgian dredging company DEME Offshore, the UK CPS specialist has been tasked with supplying 136 patented TekLink Mechanical Latch cable protection systems and bellmouths for application on both J-Tube and J-Tubeless inter-array cable pull-ins.

Tekmar Energy, part of Tekmar Group Plc (LON:TGP), informed on Friday the systems were delivered in January this year from the company's facilities in Newton Aycliffe, UK.

Another Tekmar Group company, AgileTEk Engineering, performed engineering and design verification.

The SeaMade wind complex is currently under construction in the Belgian North Sea. It merges two projects that were previously known as the 235-MW Mermaid and the 252-MW Seastar.

SeaMade is the company's 8th offshore wind project in Belgium and 80th worldwide, Tekmar Energy said.
