Fugro awarded Hornsea Three and Hornsea Four geotechnical site investigation contract

Fugro has been awarded a marine geotechnical site investigation contract by Ørsted for the Hornsea Three and Hornsea Four offshore wind farm developments off the East Coast of England in the North Sea. The works will run from May to August 2022.

The detailed site investigations include, downhole cone penetration testing (CPT), seismic cone penetration testing (SCPT), downhole sampling and high-quality rock coring as well as borehole geophysical logging. This will not only enable reliable and efficient foundation designs, but also help derisk the project’s future developmental phases. Fugro will be mobilising multiple vessels from its fleet.

Dennis Koenen, Fugro’s Global Director Geo-data Acquisition Marine Site Characterisation, said: “Our site investigation services are crucial for ensuring the long-term performance of offshore assets, such as the Hornsea Project. With an array of specialised vessels and equipment, we are committed to supporting the UK’s energy transition and we’re proud to continue working with Ørsted, building on our past success, to provide critical support that will help move this project forward.”

Hornsea project

Hornsea Three and Hornsea Four are part of the broader Hornsea Project – which includes the two current world’s largest offshore wind farms – Hornsea One (operational since 2020) and Hornsea Two (under construction). Fugro has been extensively involved in the development of the Hornsea Project sites since 2011, completing a range of geophysical, geotechnical and environmental services.
