Ørsted has awarded Fugro a marine geotechnical site investigation contract for its Hornsea Three and Hornsea Four offshore wind farm developments. Located off the East Coast of England in the North Sea, this forms part of the broader Hornsea Project.
With operations set to run from May to August 2022, Fugro will be mobilising multiple vessels from its fleet to deliver large volumes of geo-data within the required project schedule. The detailed site investigations include, downhole cone penetration testing (CPT), seismic cone penetration testing (SCPT), downhole sampling and high-quality rock coring as well as borehole geophysical logging.
The data will be used to determine the foundation designs and also to help derisk the project’s future developmental phases. Fugro has been involved in the development of the Hornsea Project sites since 2011, completing a range of geophysical, geotechnical and environmental services.
