Fugro begins final geotechnical investigation for Dutch offshore wind farm

Fugro has commenced the final geotechnical investigation at the Borssele wind farm sites, off the Dutch coast of Zeeland.

The geotechnical work at sites III and IV, undertaken on behalf of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, follows the previous geotechnical and metocean investigations at the Borssele development.

Fugro will execute boreholes with various in situ testing programmes and seabed cone penetration testing.

The company’s geoconsultancy engineers and geologists will provide an integrated geological ground model, which will provide data for the developers preparing to submit tenders.

The programme will entail a large advanced testing programme at Fugro’s specialised laboratory in Wallingford.

When complete, the offshore wind farm will have the capacity to generate 1,400MW of energy.
