Tinley Park, Illinois – Panduit has acquired DongWon EN-Tec’s portfolio of subsea cable and pipe protection products, whose applications include protecting connections to offshore wind turbines. Terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
The deal includes DongWon’s Uraprotect polyurethane submarine cable and pipe protectors, bend stiffeners and restrictors, and J-Tube seals for wind turbines.
Panduit said the acquisition will enable it to offer customers in the Asia-Pacific regions a wider range of protection products for protecting power and fibre optic cables in sub-sea installations.
“I am pleased to complete this acquisition with our Asia Pacific team which expands our portfolio of high-quality products for offshore wind customers,” said John Buck, Panduit’s VP for electrical infrastructure. “The acquisition of DWE’s product line and technology will allow us to accelerate our renewables growth strategy and invest in new product innovations for our customers as they build larger offshore wind installations in the future.”
