Germany’s Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (Das Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie (BSH)) has awarded Fugro a multi-annual geotechnical site investigation contract in the German North Sea and Baltic Sea. The programme will be completed in three phases over the next 3 years and comprises geotechnical investigations at potential offshore wind farm development areas. Our site characterisation services will provide geotechnical data acquisition from multiple geotechnical drilling vessels, and geotechnical laboratory testing and reporting by our German and UK laboratories. The total contract value is approximately EUR 25 million.
With project preparations underway, Fugro is moving quickly to mobilise for the target start date of mid-September. Fugro’s survey department will provide unexploded ordnance (UXO) services before our dedicated geotechnical drilling vessels (the Fugro Scout and Gargano) execute the fieldwork. Our standard and advanced laboratory testing results will be used by future wind farm developers to prepare their bids.
“Fugro’s track record in providing reliable geotechnical data in advance of the developers’ bidding rounds has certainly helped win this project; being able to mobilise two dedicated geotechnical vessels for the project was another major factor in our success in this award,” said Erik Vogt, Fugro’s Project Manager.
