UXOcontrol has completed the Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) identification campaign for the Kincardine Offshore Wind Farm. Located approximately 15km off the south-east coast of Aberdeen, at water depths ranging between 60m to 80m, Kincardine Offshore Wind Farm has a nominal capacity of 50MW, comprising offshore floating wind turbine structures, an offshore export cable, a landfall and an onshore export cable.
Following geographical survey works, the identification campaign commenced in May 2020, with the mobilisation of UXOcontrol‘s UXO clearance vessel, the Noordhoek Pathfinder (NHP), which conducted works at water depths varying from 13.9m to 87m over a period of four weeks. The contract engaged 40 of UXOcontrol’s offshore personnel, in addition to six of its onshore personnel.
UXOcontrol’s first UK contract as the rebranded joint venture of N-Sea and BODAC, was awarded by Cobra Wind International, a subsidiary of Spanish developer and construction company Grupo Cobra, which has been contracted to undertake the engineering, design, supply, construction and commissioning of the wind farm.
