JDR Bags East Anglia One Cable Deal

JDR has been awarded a contract by VBMS (UK) to supply intra-array cables for ScottishPower Renewables’ East Anglia One (EA1) offshore wind farm.

The contract will see JDR design and manufacture 155 km of array cables including end terminations.

JDR will also provide a cable management system at each offshore wind turbine generator which allows for a 66kV topside connection to the switchgear cables.

VBMS’ director commerce, Jack Wattel said: “We are looking forward to cooperating with JDR on the production and installation of 102 66kV intra-array cables and delivering this prestigious project in a safe and efficient way to ScottishPower Renewables.”

JDR will manufacture the cables at its facility in Hartlepool, UK, with delivery scheduled for Q1 2019.

The 714MW EA1 offshore wind farm will consist of up to 102 wind turbines and will be located 43 km off the Suffolk Coast in the southern North Sea.

The wind farm is expected to power 500,000 homes when fully operational in 2020.
