Vineyard Wind, a joint venture between Avangrid Renewables and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), have announced that Jan De Nul Group, together with its subcontractor JDR Cable Systems, has been selected to supply and install the roughly 130 miles of inter-array cables for the Vineyard Wind 1 project.
The 66kV inter-array cables connecting 62 GE Haliade-X turbines will transfer electricity to an offshore substation for transmission to the grid. Part of the contract calls for installation support and subsea training for individuals with an electrical background, creating approximately 40 new full-time jobs in Massachusetts, USA. Vineyard Wind 1 is an 800 MW project located 15 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, MA, USA.
