JDR has completed the delivery of subsea power cables and accessories to Jan De Nul for the Taiwan Power Company offshorewind farm phase one, the Changhua project.
JDR designed and manufactured 65 kilometers of array and export cable to transmit power from the wind turbines to the shore.
The 33kV cables were manufactured in JDR’s facility in Hartlepool, UK, with the support of its group facility in Bydgoszcz, Poland, before being loaded onto the cable laying vessel Isaac Newton for transport and installation in Taiwan by Jan De Nul.
Project director at JDR, Paul Marsh said: “This is our second project in Taiwan and we are thrilled to be a part of the local offshore wind success story. We delivered the cables on time to our customer, Jan De Nul, and we have once again enjoyed working alongside them in this emerging region.”
The project is located off the coast of Fangyuan in Changhua County in Central Western Taiwan. It is being developed by Taipower in a consortium with Jan De Nul and Hitachi, as the project’s main contractor.
