JDR demonstrates technology, products & services for subsea operators at Offshore Europe 2013

: 21 August 2013: At Offshore Europe 2013 from 3-6 September, JDR will demonstrate its expanding offshore technology, product and service offer for offshore energy production. As specialists in connecting subsea infrastructures, JDR will showcase its latest developments; from thermoplastic subsea production umbilicals and subsea power cables to its ground-breaking Open Water IWOC Umbilical System and accessories for custom engineered subsea systems. JDR will be based at stand 3B200.
Andrew Norman, JDR’s Chief Executive Officer commented: “At JDR we design, manufacture and deliver world-class subsea products and services for many of the world’s major energy companies and subsea service providers. Our full service offer supports customers from project analysis to engineering design, manufacture, mobilisation and lifecycle service and support. The JDR engineering team is at the forefront of subsea technology developments, working to maximise the efficient delivery of power, control and communications for oil, gas and renewable energy operators.”
Paul Gahm, VP Sales and Marketing at JDR, commented: “As operators develop subsea installations and interventions at ever increasing water depths and distances, JDR has created a range of custom engineered products, including umbilicals, power cables and subsea engineering equipment, from hang-off assemblies to Subsea Umbilical Terminations that connect topside to subsea.
“He continued: “Our end-to-end product capability is supported through global Aftermarket, Installation and Maintenance Services (AIMS). AIM Services supports customers from project installation to pre-commissioning with full product lifecycle support. Our combined approach maximises investment in a JDR product and supports our clients in lowering the total lifetime cost of equipment ownership.”
JDR uses its in-depth knowledge of hose, umbilical and cable technology to create products tailored to individual client project requirements, including:
Subsea Production Umbilicals – JDR has taken a leading position in next generation subsea production umbilicals. Utilising its knowledge of the inherent lifecycle and reliability design challenges, JDR’s SPUs are designed to operate long-term in challenging and dynamic subsea environments.
Subsea Power Cables – JDR has utilised its expertise in designing dynamic and static products for harsh offshore environments to create power cables for subsea applications. JDR’s SPC solutions can include fibre optic communications and fluid transfer between fixed and floating offshore installations and subsea infrastructures.
IWOCS (Intervention Workover Control System) – JDR is the world’s leading manufacturer of IWOCS umbilicals. JDR has developed specialised test equipment to simulate deployment before final manufacture and assembly; over 40 IWOCS designs have been through this specialist validation programme. JDR’s design team has led the development of Open Water Umbilical technology. Open Water products significantly reduce offshore operating costs by enabling IWOCS umbilicals to be deployed and recovered independent of the workover riser or wire-line.
Renewable Energy Cables – JDR has become a global leader in the development of Inter-Array Power Cables for offshore wind, wave and tidal energy projects. The JDR engineering team understands the key development challenges in medium voltage dynamic and static Inter-Array Power cables. Now, with the support of a UK government grant, JDR is developing the next generation of high voltage cables.
Subsea Engineering Equipment – JDR’s approach includes a growing range of system accessories include custom-designed subsea umbilical terminations, cable hang-offs and pull-in heads.
Service and Support – JDR’s AIM Services provides 24/7 aftermarket, installation and maintenance support through a global network of highly experienced and fully certified technicians. AIMS supports customers from project installation to pre-commissioning with full product lifecycle support.
