Tekmar Energy wins its first project with Tideway BV (member of the DEME Group) for Cable Protection Systems on the Merkur Offshore Wind Farm
Newton Aycliffe-based Tekmar Energy has been awarded a contract with Tideway BV to supply 150 of its patented TekLink able protection systems (CPS) on the prestigious Merkur offshore wind farm project in Germany.

“This project will be utilising the seventh generation CPS which has recently been harmonised to accelerate offshore installation works and approved by DNV.”
