Fugro returns to Borssele for UXO surveyProjects and Operations // June 29, 2017
Fugro has been awarded a joint contract with Boskalis for survey and identification of unexploded ordnance (UXO) in the Borssele Wind Farm Zone offshore The Netherlands.
The multimillion-Euro contract awarded by Dutch transmission systems operator TenneT includes specialised survey and identification work in relation to cable routes for the planned grid connection between TenneT’s two offshore platforms and its high-voltage substation onshore.
Gertjan Paff, Fugro’s Regional Project Director for Europe, said: "By integrating vessels and innovative systems developed in-house, we have successfully executed similar marine site characterisation projects in recent years.”
The award follows a number of contracts undertaken by Fugro at the Borssele offshore windfarm since early 2015, where work scopes have included geophysical surveys, geotechnical site investigations, integrated geological modelling and measuring meteorological and oceanographic conditions.
The new UXO survey contract commences this summer and continues for a duration of approximately two years.
