The contract was awarded by global subsea contractor Subsea 7, which has been working on the shallow water project up until now.

Under the contract, JDR will design and manufacture two five kilometre-long subsea power cables in addition to topside termination equipment and connection boxes.

Subsea 7 SCM manager Antoine Legrand said, “JDR showed the capacity to achieve the challenging schedule our project team requires and has good experience of Total specifications and expectations. After careful evaluation we were pleased to place this contract with them.”

For the Ofon project, the JDR engineering team has developed a special cable design to ensure ‘on-bottom stability’ in the shallow waters where the cable will operate.

JDR sales director Gavin Rippe stated, “JDR is delighted to be again working with two of our existing clients in the offshore industry – Subsea 7 and Total.  We know our state-of-the-art Hartlepool manufacturing facility and the excellent delivery times it offers was an important element of this contract win.”

The company has previously worked with Subsea 7 in the North Sea on Dana Petroleum’s Medway project offshore the Netherlands and has supplied subsea power cables for three previous Total projects offshore West Africa.
