Fugro to perform geotechnical site investigation for Hollandse Kust (noord)

Atlantis Dweller © Fugro

Fugro is to deliver geotechnical site investigation solutions for the Hollandse Kust (noord) offshore wind farm. The fieldwork will start this month and is planned to be completed by the end of September.

Fugro was awarded the contract by the CrossWind consortium, a joint venture between Shell in the Netherlands and Eneco, who recently won the tender for the Hollandse Kust (noord) offshore wind farm zone.

The site investigation solutions will comprise an unexploded ordnance (UXO) site clearance survey, using the vessel Atlantis Dweller, followed by a seabed cone penetration test (CPT) investigation.

For the CPT investigation, Fugro will mobilise their seabed SEACALF® Mk V DeepDrive CPT system which acquires data over the full foundation depth of wind turbines. The fieldwork is scheduled to begin this month and should complete by the end of September.

The CrossWind consortium plans to have Hollandse Kust (noord) operational by 2023 with an installed capacity of 759 MW, generating at least 3.3 TWh per year. The wind farm will be located 18.5 km off the Dutch coast near the town of Egmond aan Zee.
