JDR Scoops Moray East Cable Contract

JDR Cable Systems has secured a contract to provide the termination and testing of 100 inter-array cables and two offshore substation interconnector cables at the Moray East offshore wind farm.

Under the contract signed with Boskalis, JDR will perform procedures for the stripping of the armor protection, fitment of the permanent hang-offs, routing, cleating, electrical and fiber termination, including cable testing.

The company will also carry out Damped AC testing of the substation interconnector cables.

The win is in addition to the supply of 200km of 66kV inter-array cable and a range of termination accessories that JDR is currently manufacturing in its facility in Hartlepool, UK.

Works are due to commence this November and continue until mid-2021.   

“We’re delighted to announce this contract win as this is our first-time providing termination and testing to Boskalis. This project win continues our increasing track record in the offshore installation market which is very important to us,” said Neil Brown, Head of Services at JDR.

The 950 MW Moray East project will feature 100 MHI Vestas 9.5 MW turbines installed some 22km off the Aberdeenshire coast and scheduled for full commissioning in 2022.
