Wind Energy – Doordewind
Fugro has been awarded the geophysical survey contract for the development of the Doordewind offshore wind zone in the Netherlands.
Fieldwork is planned to commence in April 2024 and will be conducted with Fugro’s geophysical vessel Fugro Pioneer.
Onboard are customized digital streamers and processing technology that enable 2D ultra-ultra-high resolution (UUHR) surveys. Using proprietary software and decimetre accuracy positioning systems, this data acquisition method enables detailed ground modeling and interpretation of near-surface geology to inform future geotechnical investigations and the design of offshore wind farms.
The data will also be used for planning geotechnical investigations and design of the offshore wind farm and installations.
The Doordewind project, led by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), is part of the Dutch Government’s Offshore Wind Energy Roadmap 2030, which aims to accelerate the development of offshore wind in the Netherlands.
