JDR selected by Seaway 7 by EnBW He Dreiht offshore wind project

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 900MW offshore wind farm. JDR won the contract through a competitive tender due to its strong technical capabilities and breadth of offshore experience providing 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, around 85km north of the Borkum Island and 95km west of the Helgoland Island. The wind farm is currently one of the largest energy transition projects in Europe and will also be the first to use turbines with a capacity of 15MW each. The project is scheduled to be operational by 2025.

John Price, Sales Director at JDR, comments: “Germany is an important location for us, and we continue to see great potential here as the offshore market grows from strength to strength. We’re proud to be part of a project that is pushing the boundaries of offshore wind by increasing megawatt capacity. This very much aligns with our values as a company because we are always looking at ways to innovate our solutions to future-proof the industry. We’re also delighted to continue to build on our long-standing relationship with Seaway 7 by providing technical expertise and subsea solutions to support in the success of He Dreiht.”

Florent Menet, He Dreiht Project Manager at Seaway 7 ASA added: “We selected JDR due to its reliability, having worked with the company previously. We especially know their ability to provide robust solutions on time, which is very valuable in adding to the expertise surrounding a project such as this.”

The cables will be manufactured at JDR’s state-of-the-art facility in Hartlepool, UK, before being installed on the project in 2025.
