March 19 (Renewables Now) - UK subsea cables provider JDR Cable Systems has won a contract from Vattenfall AB to supply inter-array cables for the 605-MW Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm in Danish waters.
The company, which is owned by Polish wires and cables producer TFKable Group, will manufacture more than 170 km of aluminium core inter-array cables and a range of termination accessories for that project. JDR’s Hartlepool facility is where the cable will be assembled and the full job is expected to be completed in 2021.
The 72-turbine Kriegers Flak park in the Baltic Sea will be Denmark's largest offshore wind complex, once completed. It is planned to be fully commissioned by the end of 2021.
About one-fifth of the plant's production will be sold to Danish pharmaceutical group Novo Nordisk AS (CPH:NOVO-B) and industrial enzymes producer Novozymes A/S (CPH:NZYM-B) under a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) signed this summer.
