VA - Pipeshield Kit for Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Farm
UK-based Pipeshield International Limited has won a contract from Seaway Offshore Cables to design, manufacture and supply scour and cable protection for Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) off the East Coast of the United States.
The CVOW project comprises the deployment of two Siemens Gamesa 6MW offshore wind turbines that will help to determine the best practises for future offshore wind projects located on the East Coast.
Pipeshield, a Tekmar Group company, is contracted to supply 30 bespoke concrete mattresses and associated lifting equipment for the protection of subsea cables on CVOW. Pipeshield’s in-house technical design department have engineered a solution based on the patented N2 edge blocks, formed using heavy density minerals and a high-quality concrete mix.
CVOW will require several different configurations of the heavy density N2 block design to meet the client’s stability requirements.
