The takeover of a offshore firm with two North East sites has been given regulatory approval.

JDR Cable Systems, which has sites in Newcastle and Hartlepool, is being acquired by Polish company Tele-Fonika Kable (TFKable) in an undisclosed deal.

The two companies have a long history of collaboration, with TFKable providing water blocked power cores for JDR’s cable and umbilical systems.

JDR’s highly technical subsea systems, used in the global offshore oil, gas and renewable industries, allow its customers to power and control their offshore operations, and will enhance the range of cable solutions TFKable can provide to its customers.

Master Thesis - Cable temperature and losses in offshore wind farmsOverall project description  

The aim of the project is to provide an understanding of the impact of different types of cable modelling, based on temperature, on array system losses. Detailed project description 

Offshore wind farms are becoming larger and are installed further away from shore. At the same time, the cost of electricity needs to be reduced. It is therefore very important to optimise the electrical infrastructure. One aspect of the optimisation is the electrical losses in the power cables, mainly in the in-site cables between wind turbines.
