Fugro has been awarded a geotechnical site investigation survey contract for the Hollandse Kust (zuid) Wind Farm Zone. This follows previous contracts awarded earlier this year for geophysical survey and metocean monitoring at the same site.
The work will be performed using dedicated geotechnical DP2 vessels from the Fugro fleet. Taking place over a period of two months, it will result in an integrated geological/geotechnical soil model of the site. The client is the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, part of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, who will use the results to provide future developers of the wind farm with site information for their tenders. The first tender for the Hollandse Kust (zuid) Wind Farm Zone is scheduled to close in the third quarter of 2017. The 356-square-kilometre Hollandse Kust (zuid) Wind Farm Zone is planned to be divided into four sites with each site capable of accommodating 350MW.
