Offshore works have started off Aberdeen Bay in preparation for full construction of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC). The geotechnical site investigation will take place at each of the EOWDC’s 11 turbine locations to assess the seabed, with the data acquired being used to inform the final design and micro-siting of the turbine foundations.

Vattenfall and Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG) – the partners behind Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Limited (AOWFL) which is the company driving the project forward - said the work keeps the scheme on schedule for operations to start in 2018. Fugro is carrying out the site investigation work on behalf of Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Limited AOWFL. The company has mobilised one of its dynamically-positioned geotechnical drilling vessels, the Bucentaur, to the EOWDC site about 2km to 5km off Aberdeen’s coast. The work is due to be supplemented with geophysical surveys later this year. The facility will have an installed capacity of up to 100MW.
