A Littleport company has won a multi-million pound contract for the world’s biggest offshore wind farm which, when operational in 2022, will supply electricity to over 1.3 million homes.

JDR Cable Systems Ltd, a manufacturer of subsea cables, is to supply inter-array cables and termination work for Ørsted’s record-breaking offshore wind farm, Hornsea Project Two.

The contract includes 100km of inter-array cables which are used to link turbines together, and carry the electricity generated by the turbines to an offshore substation.

Richard Turner, chief executive officer of JDR, said: “Hornsea Project Two is a 1.4 gigawatt (GW) offshore wind project that will be built at the lowest ever price seen in the UK.

“This incredible achievement is being enabled by organisations like JDR and Ørsted working collaboratively to push the technical boundaries of offshore wind projects – making them more economic than ever before and leading the way for future developments.”
