Tekmar will provide 346 cable protection systems and 30 bellmouths, for both array and export cables, protecting all subsea cables as they enter and exit the underwater foundations.

Tekmar Energy managing director Russell Edmondson said: “We are delighted for Tekmar to be selected as the cable protection system and bellmouth supplier for Hornsea Two.

“This is one of the most significant projects in the industry to date. This continues Tekmar’s excellent relationship with Ørsted and is part of our six-year framework for providing Cable Protection Systems on their future projects.”

The CPS system will be produced at Tekmar Energy’s manufacturing facility in the North East of England.

Located in the North Sea 89km off the Yorkshire coast, Hornsea Two is the sister project to Hornsea One. It will feature 165 turbines that have a combined capacity to generate 1.4GW of clean energy to power more than 1.3 million homes. It is set for completion in 2022.

Ørsted EPC director Patrick Harnett said: “Hornsea Two is a game-changing renewable energy project in terms of both size and cost.

“The North East continues to play an important role in manufacturing components for our portfolio of world-leading offshore windfarms, with hundreds of Cable Protection Systems, Transition Pieces and kilometres of array cables coming from the region.

“We are very proud to be a part of the ongoing offshore wind development in the region and we are committed to further developing a competitive UK supply chain that can support Ørsted’s projects in the UK and around the world.”
