JDR Becomes Preferred Cable Supplier for Windfloat Atlantic Project

JDR has been selected by WindPlus as the preferred cable supplier for the Windfloat Atlantic (WFA) 25MW floating wind farm.

The project, located off the coast of Viana de Castelo, Northern Portugal, will see the application of dynamic cables operating at 66kV.

The scope of supply includes the design and manufacture of array cables to suit V164 floating turbines. The floating wind turbines will be connected via a network of inter-array cables to one export cable.

To support the project, JDR has designed a dynamic cable break away system, which protects the floating platform in the unlikely event of a mooring line failure. JDR’s proposal also includes HV termination and testing, the company said.

James Young, chief technology officer at JDR said, “We are extremely proud to be selected by WindPlus as the preferred cable supplier for the Windfloat Atlantic project. JDR has an extensive track record in the design and supply of dynamic products to the oil and gas industry. This experience was essential in designing and optimizing the cable configuration and accessories to meet the needs of this floating offshore wind project.”
