Fugro wins site investigation contracts for Denmark’s Energy Island

Fugro secured two geotechnical site investigation contracts with Energinet for Denmark’s proposed Energy Island project in the North Sea.

A global first, this purpose-built artificial island will be situated 80 km offshore in the North Sea and act as a hub connecting hundreds of surrounding wind turbines. Fugro will perform the preliminary geotechnical site investigation for the Energy Island and the adjacent offshore wind farm zone. The resulting Geo-data will be used to prepare an integrated geological and geotechnical soil model on which wind farm developers will base future tenders.

The fieldwork will run from February to May next year. Following the fieldwork, an extensive testing programme will be delivered by various laboratories, including Fugro’s newly certified and accredited laboratory in Belgium.

Commenting on the award Jens Kenneth Larsen, Project Manager for Energinet’s site investigations on the future Energy Islands, said: “Energinet is pleased to see Fugro among the suppliers for the Energy Island site investigation project. Reliable geotechnical site investigations are very important for future tenders and therefore a very important part of the foundation when realising the Energy Island and surrounding offshore wind farms.”
