Marine geoscience and offshore construction support service provider NextGeo has been carrying out various works as part of its contract with TenneT TSO B.V. for UXO survey services in support of the vast offshore wind energy programme promoted by the Dutch Government in the Dutch sector of the North Sea.
Following the completion of a successful route survey campaign performed on Hollandse Kust West Beta (HKWb) last year, NextGeo has selected PanGeo Subsea (a Kraken Robotics Company) to provide its SBI to conduct a detailed survey around the Baloeran wreck close to cable routes to provide a clearer picture of subsea conditions underneath the seabed level.
NextGeo CEO Giovanni Ranieri commented, “The relationship between NextGeo and PanGeo is just at the beginning, but this represents a key milestone for both companies with multiple potential developments in the current energy transition market.”
Applying state-of-the-art beamforming synthetic aperture sonar arrays that provide a real-time 3D view of the sub-seabed, PanGeo’s SBI gathers highly accurate and usable data and has a proven track record in cables and UXO detection. The SBI has been installed on Ievoli Ivory’s WROV to ensure a maximised coverage of the targeted area characterised by strong currents, shallow water depth and very low visibility.
