Fugro has commenced marine site characterisation work at the Hornsea Two Offshore Wind Farm site. The contract, awarded by renewable energy company Ørsted, covers geotechnical site investigation and follows other contracts awarded earlier this year for geophysical investigation services at the site. The geotechnical data acquired by Fugro will support the development of the ground model, assist design activities for the turbine foundations and inform cable route design at the Hornsea Project Two and Hornsea Project Three sites. Fugro’s workscope includes seabed and downhole geotechnical investigations, which will be undertaken using state-of-the-art equipment from a number of Fugro’s specialist vessels. “We’re delivering this offshore project using our innovative new SEACALF® MkIV system for seabed cone penetration testing,” explained Dennis van den Bulk, Fugro’s Senior Project Manager.www.fugro.com
