JDR has been awarded a contract for the design and manufacture of a hybrid power steel umbilical for the Ravn field development in the North Sea, from natural gas company Wintershall Noordzee B.V.
JDR’s work includes the delivery of an 18.2km umbilical, providing power and control by connecting a new platform to an existing platform for long-tem well testing off the Danish coast.
The composite umbilical is comprised of hydraulic hoses, super duplex steel tubes, MV power cores, and fibre optic cables. Subsea hardware and life-cycle support will also be provided by JDR, through their Global Service division.
The umbilical will be manufactured and loaded out at JDR’s deep-water, quayside Hartlepool facility, and will be delivered to the Ravn field in the North Sea.
Delivery is scheduled for the third quarter of 2015.
Carl Pilmer, EMEA umbilical sales director for JDR said: "We are extremely proud to be working with Wintershall on this Ravn project. We have a long history of umbilical and cable delivery to North Sea developments.
"This project is yet another testament to JDR’s design and manufacturing expertise."
