To figure out the foundation design, fifteen samples of soil will be taken by drilling boreholes in the seabed at the offshore wind project’s site off Dorset and Hampshire coasts, to the west of the Isle of Wight.

The developer contracted Horizon Geosciences to carry out the work, which is being done from their DP II vessel Horizon Geobay. The contract is worth more than GBP 1 million.
