Areva Ormonde wind farm project completed

19 April 2011

Swedish owned Roxtec has completed an 18 month installation of seals to protect cables in a 858 tonne substation servicing the Ormonde offshore wind farm being built in the Irish Sea, 10km off Barrow-In-Furness in Cumbria. The substation has been designed and built by renewable energy company Areva.

Roxtec’s UK managing director Graham O’Hare said the wind farm sector is a key growth market. “We have now been involved in almost every offshore wind farm in Europe, ” he said. “On this project our seals are secured around the low voltage cables within the substation itself as well as sealing the high voltage cables which transport the power from the wind farm to the national grid. Our seals are offering protection primarily from fire and water and are therefore a key product in preventing vital equipment breaking down.”

Mr O’Hare said Roxtec’s engineering team had designed and manufactured bespoke products to meet specific challenges on the project. “This project again demonstrates the quality, flexibility and cost effectiveness of our cable seal products,” he said. “Roxtec is keen to work with mechanical, electrical and instrumentation engineers working in the green energy sector wanting to protect cables and pipes at the point they enter a wall, cabinet or structure.”
