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.
With this week being UK Wind Energy Week, we wanted to share how we are increasing our capacity to support the growing offshore wind market with our upgraded Vertical Laying-Up Machine (VLM) in Hartlepool, UK. With the capability to accommodate larger process drums, we can now produce longer unjointed cables, enabling more projects to be […]
The training sessions conducted last week were led by JDR in collaboration with the dedicated members of IBEW 223. This training program was made possible through the support of the Mass CEC grant awarded to IBEW 223. This initiative plays a vital role in advancing the renewable energy sector and has already proven beneficial to […]
JDR’s Hartlepool team has successfully completed the termination phase and is now preparing for the loadout of a thermoplastic umbilical that will play a crucial role in supporting the security of our energy supplies. The umbilical spans a total distance of 23 kilometers, is divided into two lengths, and has been specifically designed to cater to […]
JDR is pleased to announce the successful completion of the loadout process for seven SSIV (Subsea Isolation Valve) umbilicals from our Littleport facility. These umbilicals have been equipped with dedicated topside and subsea hardware, including pull-in heads, hang-offs, subsea umbilical termination units, and wireless pressure monitoring kits. To ensure their safe transportation, the umbilicals have […]
JDR Cable Systems (JDR), the global subsea cable and umbilical supplier, part of the TFK Group, has been awarded the contract to supply, test and terminate the 66kV dynamic inter array cables (IAC) for independent renewable energy producer Qair’s floating offshore wind Eolmed pre-commercial 30MW project. Located in the south of France, 18km off the […]
James Young, Chief Strategy and Compliance Officer at JDR Cables, participated in a panel discussion on The Global Offshore Wind Supply Chain during Global Offshore Wind Exhibition and Conference. During the panel session, James shared his knowledge and expertise regarding the importance of developing a responsible supply chain and how the offshore wind industry can […]
JDR is thrilled to have the opportunity to host The Business Network for Offshore Wind in Hartlepool yesterday and showcase our expertise and capabilities in the field of offshore wind. The visit is part of the US based Business Network’s study tour aimed at providing delegates with a comprehensive understanding of the offshore wind industry. The […]
TFKable and JDR are pleased to announce their joint partnership with The Copper Mark. As leading companies in the cable industry, we recognize the importance of promoting responsible production of the copper used in our cable products, knowledge of the best practices and contributing to sustainable development.By joining The Copper Mark as partners, we are demonstrating our commitment to meeting the increasing […]
