Seaproof Solutions has secured a contract with Jan De Nul for the supply of Cable Protection Systems (CPS) for the Borkum Riffgrund 2 and Trianel Windpark Borkum II projects off the coast of Germany.

The contract covers the design and supply of CPS to be used for the export cable connecting Borkum Riffgrund 2 to the DolWin Gamma platform; and the Trianel Windpark Borkum II construction phase wind farm to the DolWin Alpha platform.

Seaproof Solutions stated that its CPS system takes into account physical interface to the foundations and environmental parameters, whilst guaranteeing a minimum design life of 30 years. 

Borkum Riffgrund 2 is located 54km off the coast of Lower Saxony, next to another of DONG's wind farms Borkum Riffgrund 1. The project will feature 56 MHI Vestas V164-8.0 MW turbines, each with a 8MW capacity, covering an area of 36km2.
