DONG Energy awards JDR Cables contract for world’s biggest windfarm
DONG Energy has awarded UK firm JDR Cables their biggest array cable contract to date, to supply subsea power cables for Hornsea Project One offshore windfarm.
With a capacity of 1.2 gigawatts (GW), when built Hornsea Project One will be the first windfarm in the world with over 1GW, capable of providing enough renewable energy for well over one million homes.
Duncan Clark, Hornsea Project One Programme Director, said:
“Hornsea Project One is truly a pioneering project for the UK and for the electricity sector. When built it will become the world’s largest offshore windfarm by a considerable margin, helping to support Government ambitions to meet carbon reduction targets.”
JDR is a leading provider of technology that connects the offshore energy industry, and it has state of the art manufacturing facilities in Hartlepool, UK.
