Everything you need to know

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.
