Dong Energy has appointed Fugro to perform offshore pre-construction surveys at the Walney Extension offshore wind farm. Fugro will begin seabed survey work in the Irish Sea off the coast of Cumbria, UK in March.
The pre-construction and engineering survey will provide detailed information to the Walney Extension project team, including additional geophysical data to ensure the seabed is clear of obstructions, including unexploded Second World War ordnance (UXO). Fugro will use three of its specialist vessels including the 41-metre Fugro Helmert, which will survey the main wind farm site. The RV Discovery and Fugro Valkyrie will also be deployed at the wind farm site as well as on the export cable route. The 660MW Walney Extension offshore wind farm is expected to be fully commissioned in 2019.
