towards the Government’s aspirations to increase the role of renewable energy in the UK’s energy mix.”


GOVERNMENT SUPPORT


development to support technical and commercial cost reduction, which is a critical element of our long-term strategy. We are proud to play a key role in this world-leading infrastructure project and continue our dedicated support to ensuring success for DONG Energy.”


MAJOR MILESTONE


Richard Turner, COO of JDR, added: “Hornsea Project One is a major milestone for JDR as it is the largest array cable contract award in our history. It is also a significant step


INNOVATIVE CABLE PROTECTION SYSTEM


Baroness Neville-Rolfe, UK Energy Minister, commented: “We are building a strong, competitive UK supply chain to support our leading offshore wind industry. Businesses in the UK have greater certainty than ever before thanks to Government support. “This agreement between JDR and DONG Energy is a great example of how this newfound certainty can drive local jobs and growth through the UK supply chain.”


COLLABORATION AND FRAMEWORK AGREEMENTS


In 2016, JDR and DONG Energy developed a collaboration agreement to identify, develop and implement initiatives in key focus areas including health, safety, environment, quality performance and cost of electricity, including risk and schedule optimisation. The Hornsea Project One contract also follows the signing of an array cable framework agreement between the parties in June

2015 and the subsequent award of the Racebank offshore windfarm array cable contract in September 2015.


PIONEERING PROJECT


Duncan Clark, Hornsea Project One Programme Director at DONG Energy, stated: “Hornsea Project One is truly a pioneering project for the UK and for the electricity sector. When built, it will become the world’s largest offshore windfarm by a considerable margin, helping to support Government ambitions to meet carbon reduction targets. “We are committed to investing in the UK and it’s great to award a significant contract like this to a UK-based company which we know offers high- quality design and reliable delivery in harsh offshore environments.”


JDR will manufacture the cables at its state-of-the-art facility in Hartlepool, UK, with batch deliveries scheduled for Q3 2018 and Q2 2019.

simplifying installation activities for each specific vessel. To ensure ease of handling, the system has a smooth outer surface to reduce drag and snagging risks, improving on deck safety during installation.


PROVEN INTEGRATED SYSTEM


CONTRIBUTES TO PERFORMANCE OF RENEWABLES


The way the oil and gas industry thinks about energy and renewables has transformed and it is no longer just a concept but a reality. As the industry continues to move further offshore, companies can short cut the development time needed for new concepts by transferring oil and gas industry knowledge and expertise to renewable energy. With a long-standing commitment to serving the renewables market, Trelleborg recently launched NjordGuard, a cable protection system specifically designed for the renewables market to protect offshore windfarm power cables. Based


on a proven offshore application, the innovative system also improves safety and reduces installation complexity in both monopile and J-tube applications.


MINIMAL ASSEMBLY


The system requires minimal assembly and can be installed, removed and reused without the need for remotely operated vehicles or diver intervention. This reduces installation complexity as the system has minimal parts and connections, further lowering the critical path time for installation to class leading standards. The protection system can be configured to each contractor’s particular deck layout or installation vessel,


The integrated system boasts class leading impact and abrasion resistance as it is manufactured using well established oil and gas materials with a long and successful track record. The reliability and durability of the system meets all installed-life requirements, is easily extendable and can be manufactured to meet any diameter cable. By transferring proven products from


the offshore industry to the renewables industry, Trelleborg is able to aid the growth in renewable energy, as well as improve installation efficiency and safety for offshore windfarm power cables.
