JDR has been selected by WindPlus as the preferred cable supplier for the Windfloat Atlantic (WFA) 25MW floating wind farm. The project – located off the coast of Viana de Castelo, Northern Portugal – will see the industry’s first application of dynamic cables operating at 66kV.
The scope of supply includes the design and manufacture of array cables to suit V164 floating turbines. The floating wind turbines will be connected via a network of inter-array cables to one export cable. To support the project, JDR has designed a dynamic cable break away system, which protects the floating platform in the unlikely event of a mooring line failure. JDR’s proposal also includes HV termination and testing.
