Tekmar Energy has reinforced its market-leading position in the supply of offshore cable protection systems by unveiling a new innovation to reduce installation time and costs, while minimising associated cable risks onshore.

The TekTube cable protection system is an onshore installed solution, thus reducing complexity offshore. It also replaces the need for the involvement of costly steel J-tubes.

Chief executive of the County Durham-based company, James Richie, said: “Our dedicated R&D team have developed a ground-breaking solution which offers a major step change in cable operations. With more jacket foundation planned to be used in the future, we have optimised a solution of cable protection and J-tube into one, allowing all the preparation works to be onshore thus refusing the risk and cost of offshore.”
