JDR has been awarded a contract by DONG Energy to supply subsea power cables for the Hornsea Project One.
With a total capacity of 1.2 gigawatts (GW), Hornsea Project One will be the first to exceed 1 GW capacity. The project is located 120 kilometers off the Yorkshire coast and will meet the electricity needs of well over 1 million UK homes, the company explained.
The contract – which is the largest array cable award in JDR’s history – will see the company design and manufacture 242 km of array cables, covering two thirds of the total wind farm capacity.
JDR will also provide terminations, hang-off arrangements and additional accessories as well as services at the site.
JDR CEO, David Currie, said: “This contract award demonstrates our leadership position in the array cable market and is the second award to date for JDR under our partnership agreements with DONG Energy.”
Richard Turner, COO of JDR, added: “Hornsea Project One is a major milestone for JDR as it is the largest array cable contract award in our history.”
Duncan Clark, Hornsea Project One programme director at DONG Energy, said: “Hornsea Project One is truly a pioneering project for the UK and for the electricity sector. When built, it will become the world’s largest offshore wind farm by a considerable margin, helping to support Government ambitions to meet carbon reduction targets.”
JDR will manufacture the cables at its facility in Hartlepool, UK, with batch deliveries scheduled for Q3 2018 and Q2 2019.
