JDR aims to invest in new cable technologies to be produced. Higher voltage cables are part of the long-term road map and these products will be manufactured at the Cambois facility. JDR in Cambois will be installing a Continuous Catenary Vulcanisation (CCV) line. This CCV line will extrude the high-performance polymeric insulation system onto large copper or aluminum conductor strand cores. The CCV line will be the only quayside located High-Voltage CCV line operational in the UK, this will enable JDR to manufacture from raw materials to finished tested cables. The combined insulated core and cable assembly facility will enable the production of longer-length cable which will support the larger offshore wind turbines of the future. The development will bring the regeneration of the derelict Brownfield site and is the first Tyneside location to bring forward this type of production facility for offshore cabling.
In 2019 JDR became the first company to deliver 66kV Dynamic Cable technology and these innovative cables
are operational at the pioneering WIndfloat Atlantic project offshore which is operating 20 km offshore Viana
do Castelo, Portugal. This pioneering project operates three giant 8.4 MW wind turbines at 185 m above the
ocean surface, and on platforms anchored to the seabed 100 m below.
JDR Cable Systems have successfully passed their most recent type test programme for 66kV Inter-Array Cables up to 800mm² to the latest industry recognised IEC standard, IEC 63026:2019 – Submarine power cables with extruded insulation and their accessories for rated voltages from 6 kV (Um = 7,2 kV) up to 60 kV (Um = 72,5 […]
We’re delighted to celebrate being contracted for our 50th offshore wind project ahead of #WindEnergyHamburg later this month! As a business, we’ve supplied and manufactured cable for some of the biggest wind projects in the world such as Hornsea 1, East Anglia One and Hornsea 2. We have now achieved a significant milestone in our offshore wind […]
We are pleased to share the great news today from Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) as they confirm the award of £ 31.6 million in grant funding for the demonstration of innovative floating offshore wind technologies. JDR was among 11 entities awarded funding in the BEIS challenge areas. Our project is titled […]

JDR Hartlepool have safely and successfully completed the first of multiple load-outs for a number of subsea dynamic subsea cables for Equinor’s Hywind Tampen, the world’s largest floating wind farm. The load-out consisted of 5 terminated cables each with pull-in-head arrangements on either end from a carousel storage located within the facility.
JDR, the global subsea cable supplier and servicer, owned by the TFKable Group, has been awarded a contract by Seaway 7 ASA to supply 66kV subsea array cables for the EnBW He Dreiht offshore wind farm in Germany. JDR will supply 100km of 66kV array cable that will connect the 64 wind turbines at the […]
JDR has reached a final agreement under the UK government’s Offshore Wind Manufacturing Scheme (OWMIS) on financial support for its new state-of-the-art subsea cable manufacturing facility in Cambois, near Blyth, Northumberland, which is to begin construction in the summer of 2022, with a planned opening in 2024. The new facility represents the next phase of […]
