RESEARCH AND INNOVATION


EAST ANGLIA ONE CONTRACT WIN


World’s first commercial application of technology 66kV array cable project


JDR, a leading supplier of subsea power cables and umbilicals to the global offshore energy industry, has been awarded a contract by VBMS (UK) Ltd to supply intra-array cables for ScottishPower Renewables’ East Anglia One (EA1) offshore windfarm.


CONTRACT DETAIL


The contract, the industry’s first commercial 66kV array cable project to date, will see JDR design and manufacture 155km of array cables including end terminations. The innovative 66kV high voltage technology will enable increased power transmission back to shore from large, high powered offshore turbines over 33kV cables. The company will also provide a unique cable management system at each offshore wind turbine generator which allows for a 66kV topside connection to the switchgear cables.


COLLABORATION


VBMS’ Director Commerce, Jack Wattel commented: “We are looking forward to cooperating with JDR on the production and installation of 102 66kV intra-array cables and delivering this prestigious project in a safe and efficient way to ScottishPower Renewables.”


JDR’s CTO, James Young added: “This award cements our position as leaders in subsea technology development. It’s fantastic to see that 66kV cable technology will be deployed on a large-scale project to further reduce the cost of offshore wind. Our continued relationship with VBMS and the latest contract with ScottishPower Renewables is not only testament to the quality of our solutions, but it will also help towards the UK government’s ambition to deliver record levels of UK content for the country’s offshore energy industry.”


FIRST OF FOUR PROJECTS


With an overall capacity of up to 714MW, EA1 is the first of four projects in the East Anglia Zone. The offshore windfarm will consist of up to 102 wind turbines and will be located 43km off the Suffolk Coast in the southern North Sea. The windfarm is expected to power 500,000 homes when fully operational in 2020. David Currie, CEO of JDR, commented:


“We’re delighted to have been awarded the EA1 contract by VBMS. Our technology group has successfully completed the development, testing and deployment of our 66kV range through 2015 and 2016 by working closely with customers and the industry – resulting in two major project awards in a matter of months.”
