Fugro wins geotechnical site investigation contract for Netherlands wind farm

The Netherlands Enterprise Agency, part of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, has awarded Fugro the contract to execute the geotechnical site investigation and geological modelling of sites I and II of the future Borssele wind farm park.

Based on geophysical survey data acquired in January and February 2015, Fugro will perform boreholes and seabed cone penetration testing at the site.

Fugro will undertake the geotechnical site investigation using two of its dedicated vessels, the MV Bucentaur and the Fugro Commander.

The investigation will provide crucial information for the developers of the Borssele offshore wind farm who are preparing for the tender which will open in December 2015.

The 1,400MW offshore wind farm zone is located off the Zealand coast at the southern border of the Dutch EEZ.
