Fugro has been awarded a further substantial marine site characterisation project off the Dutch Coast. This is the largest geotechnical site characterisation programme tendered by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency and will be performed in the Hollandse Kust Wind Farm Zone. Other contracts executed by Geo-data specialist Fugro in the various zones of Hollandse Kust (zuid and noord) and Borssele wind energy developments since 2015 include geophysical and geotechnical data acquisition and metocean monitoring. With project preparations underway, and a target start date in April, contract finalisation is expected soon. The geotechnical programme will continue until September and comprises a seabed investigation and borehole drilling. Fugro will also deliver standard and advanced laboratory testing and an integrated geological/geotechnical soil model, which will be used by future developers of the wind farm to prepare their bids. The fieldwork will utilise Fugro vessels including state-of-the-art geotechnical drilling vessel, Fugro Scout.
