JDR Partners Up with McAllister on US Offshore Wind Cable Services

JDR and McAllister Towing have established a memorandum of understanding for the development and collaborative operation of a US East Cost Offshore Wind subsea power cable service base with an integrated cable training center.

This new facility is being targeted to be developed on an existing McAllister quayside waterfront property in the north eastern United States.

The site has been selected due to its proximity to the current offshore wind leases and the potential of the region in the use of renewable energy sources.

Initially this base will serve as a staging area for subsea power cables to enable local storage, maintenance and deployment to the offshore wind fields. Longer term plans include the establishment of office, storage, workshop and training facilities to develop offshore high voltage electrical and fiber optic competencies to the local workforce.

As the US offshore wind industry matures, this service base will transition to become the JDR Offshore Wind Life of Field Service Center. Some of the services to be provided will be asset management services, capital spare cable storage, preservation and maintenance as well as the JDR life of field service headquarters for the US Offshore wind market.
