Fugro has secured a new contract with Energinet to undertake cable route surveys for the North Sea Energy Island project. The Energy Island will serve as an offshore power plant distributing up to 10GW of offshore wind to Denmark and other neighbouring markets.
Fugro will perform a combination of geophysical, geotechnical services and laboratory testing to provide insight into the ground engineering challenges along the cable route from the Danish landfalls to the future artificial island location.
Fugro’s survey vessels will mobilise to site in March 2022 to begin the geophysical and geotechnical surveys. This will include remotely operated vehicle (ROV) inspections and shallow geotechnical investigations using Fugro’s Blue Snake geotechnical system. The Blue Snake integrates cone penetration testing (CPT) and sampling technology to enable data to be captured in a single pass with testing completed consecutively at fixed distances along the cable route.
