Leask Marine's C-Fenna Completes Borssele 1&2 Works

Leask Marine's vessel C-Fenna has completed the recovery of ten seabed frames and buoys at Ørsted's Borssele 1 and 2 offshore wind farm in the Netherlands on behalf of Fugro.

The vessel completed the deployment of the frames and their surface marker buoys and the collection of three grab samples at ten locations across the project in November last year.

Leask Marine also completed the deployment of wavescan buoys for the wind farm on behalf of Multraship Towage & Salvage.

Fugro won a joint contract with Boskalis in June 2017 for survey and identification of unexploded ordnance (UXO) at the Borssele Wind Farm Zone, as well as cable routes for the planned grid connection between TenneT's two offshore platforms and its high-voltage substation onshore.

The agreement follows several contracts Fugro undertook at the site since early 2015, where the scope of works included geophysical surveys, geotechnical site investigations, integrated geological modeling and measuring meteorological and oceanographic conditions.

The 752MW Borssele 1 and 2 offshore wind farm will comprise 94 8MW Siemens Gamesa wind turbines located 22km from the coast of the Dutch province of Zeeland.

The wind farm is scheduled for commissioning by the end of 2020.
