Rovco has signed a contract with Van Oord to perform subsea investigation works on Dutch offshore wind farm Hollandse Kust Noord. The company has been contracted to carry out an unexploded ordnance (UXO) investigation and identification campaign, as well as survey work across nominated locations on the wind farm with the removal of any potential debris objects at the site which may impede foundation and cable installation works.
The project will utilise the DPII vessels Glomar Wave and VOS Star across two phases, deploying Rovco’s Seaeye Leopard WROV. CrossWind, a joint venture between Shell and Eneco, received the permit for the Dutch offshore wind farm in 2020, and selected Van Oord as the Balance of Plant contractor for the development. Hollandse Kust Noord will have an installed capacity of 759 MW and CrossWind plans to have the wind farm, located 18.5 kilometres off the coast of the Netherlands, operational by 2023.
