Fugro starts GI work for German high voltage scheme

Fugro has said that it is working on a site characterisation scheme for a new high voltage electricity transmission line in Germany.

The ground investigation for the 38km-long 380kV grid development between Husum to Niebüll is the second scheme Fugro has undertaken for European electricity system operator Tennet.

The company undertook a similar scheme for a 46km line from Heide to Husum last year.

Both schemes form part of the planned 140km Westküstenleitung – west coast line – to transmit electricity generated by offshore renewable sources.

According to Fugro business development manager Roberto Quaas, the ground investigation work is complex due to the logistics and liaison with landowners. The work will combine combining drilling and sampling, CPT, dynamic probing and laboratory testing.
