UK JDR Cables Gets USD 23 Mln Boost from HSBC

JDR Cables, a leading provider of custom-designed and manufactured subsea power cables, umbilical systems and reeler packages for a broad range of applications, has been boosted by a £15m fund from HSBC, the Gazette Live reports.

Martin Boden, JDR’s Chief Financial Officer was quoted as saying: “JDR has grown hugely. We now employ 246 at Hartlepool and hope to carry on increasing our headcount. We have recently won a very large contract for the German market, and America is also waking up. It’s a very strong position to be in – the future is bright for Hartlepool.

“We are delighted to have secured the additional facilities provided by HSBC, with the support of the ECGD, and these facilities will enable JDR to continue to bid for, and win, large export contracts.”

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
