Jan De Nul to install inter-array cables at Massachusetts OWF [free access]

August 19, 2021

The Jan De Nul Group, together with JDR Cable Systems as a subcontractor, will supply and install inter-array cables for the Vineyard Wind 1 offshore wind farm in Massachusetts.

 

Jan De Nul and the TFKable Group-owned JDR will deliver almost 210 km of 66 kV cables that will connect the project’s 62 GE Haliade-X turbines and transfer electricity to an offshore substation for transmission to the grid.

 

From the offshore substation, power will be delivered to the shore via an export cable, which is to be supplied by the Prysmian Group.

 

Vineyard Wind—a joint venture (JV) between Avangrid Renewables and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP)—is developing the 800 MW wind farm about 56 km off the Massachusetts mainland.
