Fugro commenced a marine site characterisation programme at Iberdrola’s Baltic Eagle Offshore Wind Farm, in German waters of the Baltic Sea. Under a contract worth over EUR 10 million, Fugro will undertake a UXO survey to clear the investigation sites, followed by a geotechnical seabed investigation and borehole drilling. The workscope also includes a programme of standard and advanced laboratory testing. The fieldwork takes place between August 2018 and February 2019 from Fugro vessels including the geophysical vessel Fugro Pioneer and geotechnical drilling vessel, Fugro Scout. To enhance quality and bring operational efficiency to the project, Fugro will deploy the proven Geobor-S piggy back drilling system, and its team of geophysical, geological and geotechnical experts will complement and optimise the final deliverables.

Mr Erik Vogt, Fugro’s Project Manager, said that “Our drilling set-up ensures that we deliver data of the highest quality to Iberdrola and obtain it in a safe manner. Starting with the Fugro Pioneer we’ll clear the sites of any UXO risks efficiently and assure timely commencement of the geotechnical operations.”

Mr Kevin O'Reilly, offshore civil engineer in Iberdrola’s Baltic Eagle team said, “We have been working intensively with Fugro in recent weeks to prepare for the commencement of the geotechnical campaign, which is crucial to the success of the project.”
