consortium, a joint venture between Shell and Eneco, has awarded Fugro a contract to deliver geotechnical site investigation solutions to support development of the Hollandse Kust (noord) offshore wind farm.
The site investigation solutions will comprise an unexploded ordnance (UXO) site clearance survey followed by a seabed cone penetration test (CPT) investigation.
After clearing the sites with the Fugro vessel Atlantis Dweller, Fugro will mobilise their seabed SEACALF Mk V DeepDrive CPT system for the fieldwork, which is scheduled to begin this month and should complete by the end of September.
The CrossWind consortium plans to have Hollandse Kust (noord) operational by 2023 with an installed capacity of 759 MW. The wind farm will be located 18.5 km off the Dutch coast near the town of Egmond aan Zee.
