Fugro Wins Another Hollandse Kust Zuid Job
The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), part of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, has awarded Fugro with a contract for geotechnical site investigation at the Hollandse Kust Zuid (South) Wind Farm Zone.
This follows previous contracts awarded earlier this year for geophysical survey and metocean monitoring at the same site.
The work will take place over a period of two months and will result in an integrated geological/geotechnical soil model of the site.
RVO will use the results to provide future developers of the wind farm with crucial site information for their tenders. The site information acquired by Fugro will be made available to the participants in the SDE+ subsidy and permit tenders for the construction and operation of offshore wind farms in the Netherlands.
The first tender for the Hollandse Kust (Zuid) Wind Farm Zone is scheduled to close in the third quarter of 2017. The 356-square-kilometre area is planned to be divided into four sites with each site capable of accommodating 350MW.
