Fugro has been awarded the geophysical survey contract for the development of the Dutch Doordewind offshore wind farm zone. Fieldwork is scheduled to start in April 2024 and will be conducted with Fugro’s geophysical vessel Fugro Pioneer.
 
Onboard are customised digital streamers and processing technology that enable 2D (UUHR) surveys. Using proprietary software and decimetre accuracy positioning systems, this data acquisition method enables detailed ground modelling and interpretation of near surface geology to inform future geotechnical investigations and the design of offshore wind farms. The data will also be used for planning geotechnical investigations and design of the offshore wind farm and installations.
 
The Doordewind wind farm zone is located approximately 77 km off the north coast of The Netherlands and will be the first wind farm to connect to the Eemshaven. The total wind farm area is approximately 580 km2 and is planned to contain a total capacity of 4 GW divided over two sites of 2 GW each. The Doordewind project, led by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), is part of the Dutch Government’s Offshore Wind Energy Roadmap 2030.
