UXOcontrol, which was appointed to complete a UXO identification campaign for the Kincardine offshore windfarm, has completed the project on time and under budget
Located approximately 15 km off the southeast coast of Aberdeen, in water depths ranging between 60 m and 80 m, Kincardine is a 50-MW floating wind project.
UXOcontrol’s first UK contract as the rebranded joint venture of N-Sea and BODAC was awarded the contract by Cobra Wind International Ltd, a subsidiary of Spanish developer and construction company Grupo Cobra, which was contracted to undertake the engineering, design, supply, construction and commissioning of the windfarm.
Following geographical survey work, the UXO identification campaign commenced in May 2020, with mobilisation of UXOcontrol’s clearance vessel Noordhoek Pathfinder, which conducted work at water depths varying from 13.9 m to 87 m over four weeks.
The contract engaged 40 of UXOcontrol’s offshore personnel, in addition to six of its onshore personnel.
UXOcontrol combines the expertise and experience of its two parent companies, N-Sea, a survey and subsea solutions provider, and BODAC, a UXO risk mitigation company.
