Fugro to Undertake Surveys at Dudgeon Wind Farm

The company will utilize the survey vessel MV Ocean Dawn for the job.

The vessel will deploy a benthic grab sampler and drop down video directly to the seabed from the stern of the vessel.

In addition, a 2m beam trawl will be deployed at selected locations and will be towed for a distance of approximately 500m on the seabed at up to ten locations.

A five-day survey is scheduled to take place in the period between 11th August and 11th September.

Following a successful partnership developing the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm off the coast of North Norfolk, Statoil and Statkraft are now working together to develop the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm, of which Statoil will be the Operator for both the construction and operational phases.

Located 32 km off the coast of North Norfolk, the 402MW wind farm will produce enough electricity for 410,000 homes.

The wind farm will feature 67 of Siemens 6MW wind turbines placed on monopiles fixed to the seabed.

Earlier last month, the two companies announced the decision to start the construction of the Dudgeon wind farm project while the offshore construction is planned for 2016.
