Renexia, part of Toto Holding, has awarded Fugro a survey contract for the Med Wind floating wind farm in the Strait of Sicily. The offshore wind farm will be located in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Sicily and will consist of 190 floating turbines with an installed capacity of 2.8 GW.
Fugro will provide Renexia with marine geophysical and environmental surveys to acquire geo-data at the proposed wind farm location and along the two proposed export cable corridors. Once Fugro has acquired the necessary geo-data in the site’s water depths of 300 m to 900 m, the results of the analysis will be used to advise on geohazard risk mitigation and identify a safe route for installation of the two export cables. These results will also feed into the final integrated environmental impact assessment (EIA) application to Italy’s Ministry of Energy Transition.
