Fugro has been awarded a contract for a seabed investigation campaign by DONG Energy. Worth GBP 13 million, the contract covers geotechnical investigation work in preparation for Hornsea Project One which is scheduled to go into operation by 2020.
The park is located 120 kilometres off the Yorkshire coast. Hornsea Project One is a joint venture between SMartWind, a consortium of Mainstream Renewable Power and Siemens Project Ventures and DONG Energy. Currently awaiting a development consent decision, Hornsea Project One is one of three projects for which DONG Energy was awarded Financial Investment Decision Enabling Contracts for Difference by the Government in April 2014. Fugro plans to use MV Greatship Manisha and MV Bucentaur to undertake the investigation work which will begin this month.
