JDR Wins Hornsea Project Two Inter-Array Cable Deal

Ørsted has awarded a multi-million pound contract to JDR Cables for the supply of inter-array cables and termination work for Hornsea Project Two, which will become the world's biggest offshore wind farm, once operational in 2022.

The contract includes 100km of inter-array cables, all to be assembled in JDR’s Hartlepool facility. The project is Ørsted’s first in the UK to use 66kV for inter-array cables, as the developer used 33kV for its previous UK projects.

"This contract builds on experience from previous projects including Race Bank offshore wind farm, which we opened earlier this year, and Hornsea Project One, currently in construction," said Patrick Harnett, Engineering, Procurement and Construction Director for Hornsea Project Two at Ørsted.

For Hornsea One, JDR (owned by the TFKable Group) is in charge of the design and manufacture of 242km of array cables, covering two thirds of the total wind farm capacity (1.2GW).

"As our wind farm projects have grown in size, and distance from shore, so too have the contracts we place within the supply chain. The technology we use is also changing as we innovate to build these projects at massively lower cost of electricity into the UK’s grid," Harnett said.
