Fugro to support Vattenfall in building the Norfolk offshore wind farms

Fugro will perform a marine site investigation for Vattenfall' Norfolk Boreas offshore wind farm located off England’s east coast. The planned 1.4 GW wind farm is part of Vattenfall’s Norfolk Zone.

The scope of work includes mobilising multiple geophysical and geotechnical vessels to complete full coverage surveys across the Norfolk Boreas wind farm, inter-array cables and export cable routes, Fugro said.

The first step will be performing geophysical surveys and unexploded ordnance (UXO) surveys, followed by a 2D ultra high-resolution seismic (UHRS) survey to provide detailed seabed and shallow sub-surface information. The collected Geo-data will not only support the positioning of the inter-array cables, but also enhance the safety of future operations, facilitate route planning and improve project design for the Norfolk Vanguard and Norfolk Boreas.

John ten Hoope, Fugro’s Marine Site Characterisation Director for Europe and Africa, said: “We’re proud to continue working with Vattenfall on their next generation of wind farms. Fugro is uniquely positioned to provide a range of resources – vessels, equipment and experienced engineers and geoconsultants – to support complex offshore infrastructure projects. Using innovative technologies, we will provide critical, high-quality Geo-data to help de-risk future developmental phases of the Norfolk wind farms, supporting the UK’s energy transition.”
