Wind Energy – Cable Route Survey
GEOxyz from Belgium has been selected by TenneT to carry out geophysical and geotechnical surveys for the export cable route for the Nederwiek 3 Offshore Wind Farm (NW3) in The Netherlands.
TenneT awarded GEOxyz the geophysical and geotechnical route survey for the inland section in lake and riverine environments from Stellendam to Geertruidenberg and optionally the offshore section near the Nederwiek OWF and the nearshore realm south of the Port of Rotterdam.
For the inland and nearshore sections, GEOxyz will mobilise Geosurveyor VII and Geosurveyor V and for the offshore works, Geo Ocean III or Geo Ocean VI are scheduled.
Ultra shallow waters and land sections will be covered by the company’s Geodrone ASV and aerial UAV team.
The aim of the surveys is to investigate the suitability of the envisaged cable corridor, establish the topography of the seabed, and identify obstructions in the corridor, said GEOxyz in a press announcement.
