JDR Cable Systems, supplier of subsea umbilicals and power cables to the offshore energy industry, has been selected by Jan De Nul to supply subsea power cables and accessories for the Taiwan Power Company Offshore Wind Farm Phase One.

The project, located off the coast of Fangyuan in Changhua County in Central Western Taiwan, is being developed by Taipower with a consortium of Jan De Nul and Hitachi as the project’s main contractor.

Phase One will see the installation and commissioning of 21 5.2MW offshore wind turbines giving a total capacity of approximately 110MW.

JDR will design and manufacture 65km of array and export cable to transmit power from the wind turbines to the shore. The 33kV cables will be manufactured at JDR’s facility in Hartlepool, UK, supported by its group facility in Bydgoszcz, Poland, before being shipped to Taiwan for installation by Jan De Nul. The project is targeted for completion in 2020.

Richard Turner, CEO at JDR, says: “We’re thrilled to be selected to participate in a Taiwanese project for the second time. The region itself has exciting prospects with the growth of its offshore market and as Taiwan becomes an increasingly popular choice for investors and developers. We’re delighted to be a part of the local success story and to bring not just our technology, but our experience to the developers and supply-chain in the region.”
