Fugro Awarded Major Offshore Wind Contract with Energinet to Support Denmark’s Renewable Energy Goals

By GeoConnexion - 1st March 2023 - 19:11

Fugro has secured a contract with Energinet for geotechnical site investigations for the North Sea I offshore wind development. The Danish government plans to expand offshore wind capacity by 4GW by 2030, and the Geo-data acquired by Fugro will be used to inform future bids in the area. This award follows Fugro’s success working on the North Sea Energy Islands project for Energinet throughout 2022, a project that is the first of its kind. Fugro’s Geo-data will provide crucial insights on the seabed and sub-surface conditions, reducing uncertainty and helping installers make informed decisions on where best to position the wind turbines and export cables. With fieldwork set to start in 2024, Fugro will mobilise multiple geotechnical vessels equipped with state-of-the-art investigation tools such as the SEACALF MkV Deepdrive system for seabed cone penetration tests and the WISON Mk V Ecodrive.
