Wind Energy – Geo-environmental Survey
ROVCO has been contracted by Flotation Energy to carry out a geo-environmental survey at its planned Cenos floating offshore wind farm, 200 kilometres off the north-east coast of Scotland.
Located in the Central North Sea, the 1.4GW Cenos floating wind development will cover approximately 333km2.
Rovco, having recently launched a dedicated marine site characterisation business line, will deploy its multi-purpose, custom-reconfigured DP2 survey vessel, the Glomar Supporter, to carry out the work.
It is expected that the project will comprise subsea studies of the floating wind turbine generators, mooring line anchor locations, inter-array cables, fixed foundation substation areas, and the portion of export cables that fall within these locations.
Rovco’s scope of work involves the acquisition of geophysical and benthic information to provide detailed data to inform environmental impact assessment (EIA) consents and the engineering processes from engineering to early front-end engineering and design (FEED) study.
