Fugro has been contracted by 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 windfarm park. The 1,400MW windfarm zone is located off the Zeeland coast at the southern border of the Dutch exclusive economic zone (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 windfarm who are preparing for the tender that will open in December 2015. Fugro will undertake the geotechnical site investigation using two of its dedicated vessels, Bucentaur and Fugro Commander. OWJ
