Tekmar Energy, a provider of protection systems for subsea cable, umbilical and flexible pipes and offshore engineering services, has secured an award in Taiwan from a repeat client Seaway 7 for wpd’s 640MW Yunlin project.

The contract is one of Tekmar’s largest non-EU projects to date.
Jonathan Linton, Package Manager at Seaway 7 said: “The success of the offshore industry relies on performance, innovation and collaboration to deliver successful projects. We are especially proud of the Yunlin project and looking forward to working with Tekmar Energy who are delivering a key part of this excellent project.”
