        据英国海底管理机构皇家地产公司(The Crown Estate)报道,据说是世界上首个环保型电缆保护系统已在海上部署完毕。

        英国王室地产公司宣布,本月初在苏格兰近海部署了全球首个碳中和无塑料电缆保护系统,以取代释放大量碳的传统混凝土保护系统。

        Cefas 与合作伙伴 ARC Marine 在苏格兰梅根风电场部署了首个海洋床垫,以帮助保护生物多样性。

        据 Cefas 称,海洋垫的设计是为了替代用于保护海上风电海底电缆的传统混凝土垫,因为它们碳中和,对海洋环境的破坏较小,可以为珊瑚、贻贝、螃蟹、龙虾、海星和鱼类的繁衍生息提供更合适的栖息地,是一种更环保、更可持续的选择。

        这项工作是由 Cefas 与 ARC Marine 合作领导的 "自然包容性电缆增强和保护(NICE)"项目的一部分,旨在为实现环境可持续的净零过渡做出贡献。

        该项目由英国皇家产业部的海上风电证据与变革 (OWEC) 计划资助,旨在更好地了解标准海底电缆保护技术与更新、更环保的替代技术之间的生态影响,为帮助政策制定者和开发商塑造英国海上风电的未来提供重要证据。

        NICE 是 Cefas 领导的四个合作项目之一,OWEC 计划为其提供了 140 万英镑的资金支持。

‘World-first’ eco-friendly cable protection system deployed offshore Scotland

What is said to be the world’s first eco-friendly cable protection system has been deployed at sea, The Crown Estate, UK seabed manager, reported.

The UK’s Crown Estate announced that earlier this month the world’s first carbon-neutral and plastic-free cable protection was deployed off the coast of Scotland, in place of the traditional concrete protection systems which release a lot of carbon.

Cefas and partners ARC Marine deployed the first marine mattresses to help protect biodiversity at the Meygen wind farm in Scotland.

According to Cefas, marine matts are designed to be a more environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional concrete mattresses used to protect subsea power cables for offshore wind as they are carbon-neutral, less disruptive to the marine environment, and can provide a more suitable habitat for coral, mussels, crabs, lobsters, starfish and fish to flourish.

The work is part of the Nature Inclusive Cable Enhancement and Protection (NICE) project led by Cefas in partnership with ARC Marine, aimed at contributing to a more environmentally sustainable transition to net zero.

Funded by The Crown Estate’s Offshore Wind Evidence and Change (OWEC) Programme, the project aims to better understand the ecological impact of standard subsea cable protection technologies versus newer, more nature-friendly alternatives, providing vital evidence to help policymakers and developers shape the future of offshore wind in the UK.

NICE is one of four Cefas-led collaborative projects being supported through £1.4 million of funding from the OWEC Programme.
