Spectrum Offshore to Survey Vattenfall’s Danish Nearshore Wind Farms
Vattenfall has awarded Spectrum Offshore with a contract to carry out unexploded ordnance (UXO) survey on two nearshore wind farms in the Danish North Sea.
Spectrum Offshore will provide Vattenfall with a shallow water dataset consisting of high-resolution multibeam, backscatter, magnetometer, and parametric sub-bottom profiler data. This is the company’s first UXO survey.
The two wind farms will comprise a total of 41 Siemens Gamesa 8MW wind turbines scheduled for commissioning in 2020.
Vattenfall firmed the 328MW order with Siemens Gamesa in the second quarter of 2018.
