Fugro has been awarded contracts by Ørsted to undertake geotechnical investigations at two offshore wind development sites. Ørsted is pursuing the development of these two new projects - Bay State Wind, located 15 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts and Ocean Wind, 10 miles off the New Jersey coast.
The marine site characterisation at both sites involves specialised sampling and in situ testing which Fugro will perform from its DP2 geotechnical drillship, Fugro Explorer. For laboratory testing and reporting services Fugro will draw on its expertise from Norfolk, VA and Houston, TX in the USA as well as Wallingford (UK) and Nootdorp (Netherlands). Site investigations are due to commence at the end of November and are expected to continue for three months.
