JDR secures cable contract for Arcadis Ost 1

In: CablesWindfarms
JDR, owned by the TFKable Group, has been awarded a contract by Parkwind to supply, test and terminate 33kV subsea cables for the Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm in Germany.

The company will supply 45km of 33kV array cable, which will connect the 27 wind turbines. It will also provide technicians, tooling and test equipment for the testing and termination of the array cable.

The cables will be manufactured at JDR’s facility in Hartlepool, where they will be picked up by the cable installation Contractor for installation in Germany in 2022.

Wojtek Skoczylas, Chief Sales Officer at JDR commented: “The German Baltic sea is a central hub for the offshore wind industry, and we can see it going from strength to strength. Just last year, German North Sea wind farms produced more electricity in one year than ever before. So, we’re not only delighted to be a part of this growth, but we’re also proud to mark our first contract with Parkwind, providing the innovative solutions and technical expertise of our team to help deliver success for their first international offshore wind project.”

Contracting JDR for both the cable supply and the termination and testing works, Parkwind will benefit from continuity throughout the project, from manufacturing to installation, ensuring the integrity of the cables through to final commissioning and energisation.

The Electrical Package Manager at Parkwind, Luc Smismans, commented: “With JDR joining the Arcadis Ost 1 project, we have now surrounded ourselves with some of the world’s best subsea cable manufacturers to complete our wind farm. The technical strength of our suppliers has always been a strong focus to Parkwind but the particular conditions of the Baltic Sea require special attention to the design and manufacturing of the cables. Parkwind has full confidence that this will be successfully accomplished by JDR and therefore we are delighted to have them on board.”

Arcadis Ost 1 wind farm has a capacity of about 257 MW and is located in the Baltic Sea, 19 km north-east of the island of Rügen, within the 12 nautical mile zone of the Federal State Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Germany. Parkwind secured grid capacity for the project in the offshore wind auction in Germany back in 2018.  Offshore installation works are expected to start works in 2022. It is expected to be capable of generating enough green electricity for the annual power consumption of more than 290,000 homes.
