Located in the south of France, the Eolmed project will be connected to the French Electricity Transmission Network (RTE), providing about 100 million kWh per year of power – equivalent to the electrical consumption of 50,000 inhabitants.

JDR will design and manufacture the 66kV dynamic cables, with the cable cores being produced at TFK’s Bydgoszcz plant in Poland.

The assets will be transported for final assembly and testing at the business’s facility in Hartlepool, U.K.

The manufacture and delivery will be completed in the second half of 2024.
