Jan de Null to install beach farm cables for vineyard wind

The developer of the United States’ first large-scale coastal wind farm has awarded a cable installation contract to Belgium’s dean de Null Group.

The contract was awarded by Vineyard Wind, AVANGRID, Inc. (NYSE: AGR), and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partnership (CIP) is a joint venture between Avangrid Renewal.

Jan de Nul, who is working with subcontractor JDR cable systems in the United Kingdom, will supply and install approximately 130 miles of negotiated cables for the 800 MW Wine 1 project. 62 GE The 66 kV overlapping cables connecting the Halide-X turbines transmit electricity to the grid station to transmit electricity to the grid.

Part of the contract requires installation support and subdivision training for individuals with an electrical background, which will create approximately 40 new full-time jobs in Massachusetts to ensure a skilled local worker.

Vineyard 1 is 15 miles[15 km]from the shores of Martha’s Vineyard, and in May became the first federally approved wind farm. The project is expected to create 3,600 jobs, including the construction of 500 unions, as well as 400,000 homes and businesses.

“Our partnership with Jan de Null Group and JDR is great news for the project,” said Lars Pederson, General Manager of Vineyard Wind. We hope that this latest step, given the recent signing of a project agreement with the project, will send a clear message on the great potential that this industry has created for both job creation and investment.

“We are pleased to be at the forefront of the US Coastal Renewal Market,” said Wouter Vermeersch, Director of Coastal Cables at Jan de Null Group. A.D. We have successfully completed the installation and installation of a turbine on the Coastal Virginia Coastal wind project by 2020 and we look forward to using this new challenge to work on the East Coast. Together with Wine Farm and our subcontractor JDR cable systems, we support the local supply chain in the Massachusetts region to meet the highest standards required for safe and efficient coastal wind farm construction.

The JDR contract for the United Kingdom is the first significant beach wind contract in the United States. We strongly believe that the sector has a strong talent pipeline and we have a long history of collaborating with STEM initiatives as well as universities in the UK and US. We know the region will be winded by the coast, so it’s great to be part of that trip, ”he said.

In April, the US-based Belgium-based marine service provider DMN was selected to use the combination of qualified steering vessels provided by the Foss.
