Roxtec has secured a major contract to deliver its innovative safety seal solutions to an ambitious £1.5 billion offshore wind farm project in the North Sea. Managing director Graham O’Hare said the firm would deliver cable transit systems, which are a key safety component to safeguard workers, structures and equipment on a substation platform being created as part of the Dudgeon Offshore Windfarm.

The deal will see a wide range of sealing solutions used on the platform, which will sit 20 miles offshore near the seaside town of Cromer in North Norfolk.

“Specific safety solutions for the Dudgeon windfarm project include delivering A0/A60 bespoke seals for HV and MV applications on the substation platform,” said Graham. “We will seal array cables to MV switchgear and cables from MV switchgear to transformer input. Additional products will be used on the platform’s cables linking its transformer to its Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) and on export-to-shore cables.

“Our seals are designed to be flexible with easy maintenance access and spare capacity for upgrades. They are both easy to install and inspect. This proved another positive factor when it came to winning this contract. Our team is further providing training as part of the deal.”
