JDR, part of TFKable Group, has been selected by Jan De Nul Group to manufacture and supply inter-array, export and land cables for Taiwan’s Formosa 1 development.

Formosa 1 is Taiwan’s first commercial-scale offshore wind farm and is being developed by Formosa Wind Power, a partnership of Macquarie Capital Group (50%), Orsted (35%) and Swancor Renewable Energy (15%).

Phase one of the development is already operational with two offshore wind turbines generating a capacity of 8MW. The next phase will add another 20 installations with a total capacity of 120MW.

Starting production in Q4 2018, JDR will deliver 21 kilometers of inter-array cable, 13 kilometers of export cable and a further 16 kilometers of land cable to transmit power from the shore to the local substation.

The 33kV cables will be manufactured at JDR’s state-of-the-art facility in Hartlepool, UK, before being shipped to Taiwan for installation by Jan De Nul.

The project is targeted for completion in 2019.

Richard Turner, CEO at JDR, said: “Jan De Nul is an established offshore installation contractor with over 20 years’ experience in Taiwan, so we’re thrilled to be working with them to deliver our first project there.”

JDR will also provide 26 offshore and 8 onshore technicians to provide cable installation support, cable accessory fitment and post-installation testing services, and will supply a range of accessories including the cable protection systems.
