The Directorate General of Energy and Climate (DGEC) from the French Ministry of Energy Transition and RTE (Réseau de Transport d’Electricité) have awarded Fugro a ground investigation campaign to support the development of future wind farms in the Sud-Atlantique zone of the Bay of Biscay.
 
The Geo-data acquired during the investigation will be used by pre-selected developers for their preliminary engineering design studies and future tenders. In July, Fugro will mobilise its newest vessel, the Fugro Quest, to acquire high-quality geotechnical data across a 430 km2 area. Fugro will also collect soil samples. Insights into the composition of the soil will be used to create a comprehensive ground model that will determine the ideal location and design of offshore developments, such as wind farms and offshore substations. The Sud-Atlantique zone is set to include a 1 GW project situated 40 km offshore Oleron island, followed by an adjacent 1 GW project.
