A2SEA, usually associated with the towering heights of offshore wind turbine construction, is now also helping to explore the depths of the ocean floor.
GEO of Lyngby Denmark, working on behalf of DONG Energy, have employed the SEA POWER and the SEA ENERGY as host vessels for them to perform soils investigation work at the site of the planned Horns Rev II offshore wind farm off the west coast of Denmark. The Danish offshore construction outfit operates two leg-supported crane vessels that are able to provide a stable offshore working platform in up to 27m of water. On this project the vessel was being used to allow GEO to undertake geotechnical work offshore. The project involved making boreholes and up to 100 Core Penetrometer Tests (CPT’s) and will provide the developer, DONG Energy, with important information for the planning of the foundation design for the approx 215MW wind farm, planned for construction in 2009.
