Ørsted Picks G-tec for Geotechnical Work Offshore Germany

Ørsted has awarded Belgium's G-tec with contracts to provide geotechnical engineering services on two offshore wind farms in the German Bight.

Under the two individual contracts, G-tec will in 2019 carry out geotechnical investigations and laboratory analysis of samples taken from the seabed in various depths within the Gode Wind offshore wind farm 03 and 04 and the German Cluster offshore wind farm 01.

For Gode Wind offshore wind farm 03 and 04, the contract includes a detailed geotechnical site investigation on all turbine locations including in-situ tests and sampling, and subsequent onshore laboratory testing. The contract also includes an option for in-situ stiffness measurements.

On German Cluster offshore wind farm 01, G-tec will carry out a preliminary geotechnical site investigation on selected positions of geological interest including in-situ tests and sampling, and subsequent onshore laboratory testing.

Gode Wind 3 and 4 projects have a total capacity of 241.75MW. Gode Wind 3 was selected in the first German offshore wind auction, and Gode Wind 4 in the second auction. The two wind farms are scheduled to be commissioned by 2024/2025, subject to a final investment decision.

The capacity and the potential timeline for the German Cluster offshore wind farm 01 is unknown.
