November 26 (Renewables Now) - Swedish engineering group Trelleborg AB (STO:TREL-B) said on Monday it had won an order from
Ørsted AS (CPH:ORSTED) for an integrated cable protection system for 900 MW of offshore wind farms in Taiwan.

The contract is for the the Greater Changhua 1 & 2a wind farms, developed by the Denmark-based power company about 35 and 60 kilometres (22 and 37 miles) off the west coast of Changhua County, Taiwan. They will comprise a total of 111 turbines.

Trelleborg's applied technologies operation will supply 235 NjordGuard cable protection systems and bellmouths to protect all inter array and export cables on the wind farms.

Project engineering works will start immediately, while installation is due in 2021.

Andy Smith, product group manager for renewables at Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation, said the contract marked the company's continued growth in renewables and continued its relationship with Ørsted, which uses NjordGuard cable protection system for its projects under a six-year framework agreement.
