Fugro is about to commence a new site characterisation campaign following a second contract award from TenneT. The new contract is part of TenneT’s grid development in northern Germany and involves detailed site characterisation services for a 38-kilometre-long section from Husum to Niebüll in North Germany.
The new 380kV ‘west coast line’ (Westküstenleitung) is an important energy project, transporting wind power produced on Germany’s west coast to the south of the country. This 140-kilometre, high capacity power line is one of several being constructed to transport coastal electricity. Providing TenneT with a single point of contact, Fugro’s team liaises with landowners, manages logistics and delivers site investigation services, combining drilling and sampling, CPT, dynamic probing and laboratory testing to deliver accurate analysis of ground characteristics.
