Implemented auxiliary phases on the tower for bypassing the load during reconductoring work in a 66kV line.

JDR Cables, part of the TFKable Group, has signed a contract with Vattenfall for the 605MW Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm in Danish waters. The company will manufacture more than 170 kms of aluminum core inter-array cables and a range of termination accessories.

The cable will be assembled in JDR’s Hartlepool facility, with project completion expected in 2021. The offshore wind generation is a 33kV cable designed system.

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 and industrial enzymes producer Novozymes A/S under a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) signed this summer.
