Hartlepool UK: JDR,the global subsea cable supplier and servicer, owned by TFKable Group, has been awarded a contract by Seaway 7 ASA to supply a 66kV subsea inter-array cable for the Moray West offshore wind farm, located in the Moray Firth, Scotland.
JDR will supply 139km of 66kV array cable and accessories that will connect the 60 wind turbines at the 882 MW offshore wind farm. Moray West is owned by Ocean Winds which plans to have the project operational by 2024/25.

The cables will be manufactured at JDR’s state-of-the-art facility in Hartlepool, UK, before being installed on the project in October 2023.
Stuart Redpath at Seaway 7 ASA added: “JDR took on the challenge and came to us with new ideas to increase manufacturing capacity and the transportation of long array cable cores.
