Ørsted recently signed a six-year framework agreement with Trelleborg for the supply of NjordGuard, a cable protection system, for use on upcoming wind farm projects.

Andy Smith, Business Manager for Global Developing Markets with Trelleborg’s offshore operation said the contract “will ensure open collaboration between both parties in order to identify, develop, implement and progress initiatives within the agreement’s key focus areas.”

NjordGuard is a protection system designed and developed to protect offshore wind farm power cables. Manufactured from API 17L certified Uraduct material, the integrated system boasts class leading fatigue, impact and abrasion resistance, Trelleborg said. Designed with a smooth outer surface and minimal outside diameter, the system requires minimal assembly, is easily extendable and can be manufactured to meet any diameter cable. NjordGuard is custom-engineered for both array and export cables.
