JDR Cables has secured an inter-array cable contract by Vattenfall for the Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm in Denmark.
Under the deal, JDR will manufacture more than 170km of aluminium core inter-array cables and a range of termination accessories.
According to the UK-based company, the cable will be assembled at JDR’s Hartlepool facility, while the project completion is expected in 2021.
“We are extremely proud to be awarded this landmark contract, which highlights our world-leading expertise in the supply of specialist subsea power cables to the offshore energy industry,” said Mike Lovell, Sales Director Renewables at JDR.
“JDR’s track record for innovation cemented the deal and will help to drive cheaper energy for consumers. We are looking forward to the development of Danish Kriegers Flak and continuing our collaboration with Vattenfall in the future.”
In November 2016, Vattenfall won the tender to build the Kriegers Flak project with the lowest ever bid of EUR 49.9 per MWh, 58% below the original cap of EUR 120 per MWh.
The 605MW offshore wind project will comprise 72 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines scheduled to be in full operation before the end of 2021.
