The contract is expected to last for 17 months. Under the terms of the agreement, JDR will be responsible for designing and manufacturing 142km of 36kV inter-array cables.

JDR will also supply of hang-offs, electrical t-connectors, inner cone connectors, cable cleats and a J-tubeless cable protection system for the project.

The last of the lot will be specifically designed to optimise installation time and minimise the potential for cable damage during installation and operation.

"Under the terms of the agreement, JDR will be responsible for designing and manufacturing 142km of 36kV inter-array cables."

The UK- based firm will also pre-commission the entire cabling system at the offshore facility from its manufacturing centre in Hartlepool.

JDR CEO David Currie said: "We are committed to supporting the growth of the renewable energy industry, and thrilled to be a key supplier for England’s first south coast offshore wind farm.

"This is another significant step for JDR to be supporting E.ON on their major investment."

UK Department of Energy and Climate Change Energy Secretary Amber Rudd said: "Our offshore wind industry isn’t just generating electricity, it’s generating jobs here in Britain."

The wind energy project is expected to be operational in 2018. It will have an annual capacity to generate 1,333GWh of renewable energy.

The facility is likely to meet the energy requirements of around 300,000 homes in the country, once it is commissioned.

GIB invested £236m in last month to acquire a stake in the wind farm development, which will be located 13km off the Sussex coast in the English Channel.
