JDR was awarded a contract by VBMS (UK) now called Boskalis Subsea Cables, to supply 56 subsea inter-array cables for Galloper Wind Farm Limited (GWFL).
The Galloper offshore wind farm is located 27km off the Suffolk Coast in the Outer Thames Estuary, UK.
With an overall capacity of up to 353MW, the offshore wind farm consists of 56 x 6.3MW wind turbines with a total generation capacity of 353MW. The wind turbines rest on monopiles in a water depth between 27m and 36m. The wind farm has an offshore substation, an onshore substation, and 56 buried subsea array cables linking the turbines to the offshore electricity platforms.
Construction of Galloper Offshore Wind Farm started with onshore works in late 2015 with offshore construction getting underway in the summer of 2016. First power was generated by the wind farm in November 2017 and it became fully operational in March 2018.
JDR designed and manufactured the inter-array cables at its state-of-the-art facilities in Hartlepool and Littleport, UK, and successfully completed delivery in Q1 2017.
