Trelleborg’s offshore operation has secured a contract to supply its range of high performance cable protection, for phase two of the prestigious offshore windfarm Fukushima Forward Project, lead by Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
Following a successful delivery of phase one, Trelleborg has been selected to provide its distributed buoyancy modules (DBM), bend stiffeners with dynamic bend stiffener connectors (DBSC), Uraduct™ cable protection and bend restrictors to phase two of the project. The products are due to be installed quarter three of this year and once complete, the project will be the world’s largest floating windfarm.
Furukawa Electric, comments: “We originally appointed Trelleborg as we knew of their reputation for delivering quality solutions and technical know-how, even under challenging timescales. And they certainly delivered. So when we commenced phase two of the project we had no hesitations to contract them again, as reliability and peace of mind in these final stages are so important.”
