NjordIC to remove UXO from He Dreiht offshore wind farm

Explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) experts from Dutch company NjordIC have been hired by German offshore wind developer EnBW to assist with the He Dreiht offshore wind farm project.

Starting in the fourth quarter of this year, the business will offer EOD know-how and UXO consultation for the next UXO survey, identification, and clearance campaign.

NjordIC will also be in charge of delivering the final UXO ALARP certification as well as the processing and analyzing the magnetometer data. According to the firm, all services will be offered in compliance with German explosive law.

The contract, which is valid until the fourth quarter of 2023, builds on the prior work NjordIC completed for the He Dreiht project, including a desktop study, risk assessment, and assistance with EnBW’s UXO survey, ID & C tender phase by providing technical advice for the tender documents.

64 Vestas 15 MW wind turbines will be placed in the He Dreiht offshore wind farm, which will be built around 110 kilometers west of Heligoland and 90 kilometers northwest of the island of Borkum.

According to EnBW, which won the right to build the offshore wind farm in April 2017 by submitting a zero-subsidy bid in the first competitive tender in Germany, the project has a grid connection capacity of 900 MW and an excess capacity of 60 MW in order to use the connection capacity as effectively as possible even when production is lower.

The wind farm is anticipated to begin offshore construction in the first quarter of 2024 and be completely operational by the end of 2025.
