JDR will supply the 45km of 33kV array cable that will connect the project’s 27 wind turbines and will also provide technicians, tooling and test equipment for the testing and termination of the array cables.

Arcadis Ost 1 is located approximately 19km north-east of the island Rugen in the federal state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

This wind farm will be Parkwind’s fifth, bringing its operational capacity under management to over 1GW.

JDR chief sales officer Wojtek Skoczylas said: “The German Baltic sea is a central hub for the offshore wind industry, and we can see it going from strength to strength.

“Just last year, German North Sea wind farms produced more electricity in one year than ever before.

“So, we’re not only delighted to be a part of this growth, but we’re also proud to mark our first contract with Parkwind, providing the innovative solutions and technical expertise of our team to help deliver success for their first international offshore wind project.”

By contracting JDR for both the cable supply and the termination and testing works, Parkwind will benefit from continuity throughout the project, from manufacturing to installation, ensuring the integrity of the cables through to final commissioning and energisation, JDR said.

The cables will be made at JDR’s factory in Hartlepool, UK, where they will be picked up by the cable installation contractor for installation in Germany in 2022.
