The Fugro Mariner has returned to port after spending almost five weeks at sea collecting soil and rock samples from beneath Bass Strait. This marks the end of Australia’s very first marine geotechnical study for offshore wind. 
50 people worked offshore for 30 days and they collected an accumulated 1.2 km of ground samples across 22 locations. The ground samples, collected from as deep at 70 metres, have been recorded and packaged in an onboard lab. Next, they’ll be sent to a specialist lab for detailed analysis. The findings from this work will be used to design turbine foundations suitable for the local ground conditions.
