Denmark's largest offshore wind farm
JDR has been awarded the contract by Vattenfall to supply 33kV Power Cables for Denmark´s largest offshore wind farm, incorporating 72 turbines of 8.4 MW with an installed capacity of 605 MW.
The inter-array cables connecting the turbines will carry the clean generated electricity to an offshore substation, for transmission to shore.
Vattenfall successfully won this tender at the world´s lowest electricity price of offshore wind power; 0.049 Euros per kWh, making this a milestone project.
JDR will manufacture over 170km of 33kV aluminium core inter-array cables and a range of termination accessories at their state-of-the-art facility in Hartlepool, UK. The qualification programme included cable development, T-Connectors, Fibre Optic Boxes and Hang Offs, Repair Joints, Chinese Fingers, Inline Joints, Loadout and Post loadout Testing.
The Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm is located 15 kilometres east of the Danish coast in the Southern part of the Baltic Sea. Spread over an area of 179km2 in water depths between 16m and 25m. When fully operational, the windfarm has the capacity to supply over 600,000 Danish households with renewable energy – equivalent to 23 per cent of all households in Denmark.
The project is targeted for completion in 2021.
