Fugro provides crucial information for wind farm developers in the Netherlands

Fugro has been contracted by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, part of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, to execute the geotechnical site investigation and geological modelling of sites I and II of the future Borssele wind farm park. The 1,400MW wind farm zone is located off the Zeeland coast at the southern border of the Dutch EEZ.

Based on the geophysical survey data acquired in January and February 2015, Fugro will perform boreholes and seabed cone penetration testing at the site. The investigation will provide crucial information for the developers of the Borssele offshore wind farm who are preparing for the tender which will open in December 2015. Fugro will undertake the geotechnical site investigation using two of its dedicated vessels, the MV Bucentaur and the Fugro Commander.
