Borehole Survey for Dogger Bank Export Cables to Start (UK)
Forewind contractor VolkerInfra will carry out a borehole survey this month near the site where the Dogger Bank Teesside A & B and Dogger Bank Teesside C & D export cables are proposed to come to shore.
The survey work is due to start on site next Wednesday (27 November), weather permitting.
The survey will determine the typical nature and thickness of the ground and soil strata, and recover samples of groundwater for laboratory testing, which in turn will determine the type of cable installation method proposed for the developments.
A drilling rig and land rover will be on the site, near the railway line between Redcar and Marske-by-the-Sea, for around a week before the area will be restored to its pre-test condition.
