LITTLEPORT, Cambridgeshire — JDR has been awarded a contract by Seaway 7 to supply 66-kV subsea array cables for the EnBW He Dreiht offshore wind farm in Germany.
JDR will supply 100 km of 66-kV array cable that will connect the 64 wind turbines at the 900-MW offshore wind farm. JDR has provided cable products and services to 50 offshore wind projects to date.
The EnBW He Dreiht offshore wind farm is located within the German Exclusive Economic Zone of the North Sea, about 85 km north of the Borkum Island and 95 km west of the Helgoland Island. The wind farm is one of the largest energy transition projects in Europe and will also be the first to use turbines with a capacity of 15 MW each.
The project is scheduled to be operational by 2025.
The cables will be manufactured at JDR’s facility in Hartlepool, UK, before being installed on the project in 2025.
