Fugro has completed a site characterisation field programme off the coast of Massachusetts for Mayflower Wind, a joint venture between Shell New Energies and Ocean Winds (the global offshore wind collaboration of Engie and EDP Renewables).
The 6‑month programme involved high‑resolution Geo‑data acquisition within the project’s 520‑km2 lease area and along the export cable routes. These data will support permitting, design and installation of the proposed wind farm, which could generate up to 800MW of renewable energy. Fugro’s work on the project began in April and comprised four vessels and one aircraft to acquire Geo-data about the site’s water depth, seafloor morphology, seabed and sub-seabed geohazards, historical and archaeological resources, benthic habitats, and soil properties.
