Bibby HydroMap Sends SeaZip Fix to Hollandse Kust Zuid I & II

Bibby HydroMap has taken the survey vessel SeaZip Fix on charter from Seazip Offshore Service.

Rebuilt in 2015, the 42m DP1 Ice Class vessel will supplement the existing Bibby HydroMap fleet and will commence seismic survey operations on Hollandse Kust Zuid I & II in the Dutch North Sea on behalf of Vattenfall during July.

According to Bibby HydroMap, this acoustically quiet vessel is ideal for a range of tasks including geophysical surveys, UXO detection surveys, cable depth of burial surveys, benthic habitat surveys, geotechnical investigations, and subsea inspections.

Bibby HydroMap CEO Gary Collins said: ”We are delighted to be chartering the SeaZip Fix for the package of work on Hollandse Kust Zuid I & II on behalf of our client Vattenfall and look forward to a successful project.”

Bibby HydroMap has worked on the Hollandse Kust Zuid I & II wind sites since March.

Located 22km from the coast of the Netherlands, the 760MW Hollandse Kust Zuid I & II will be the world’s first offshore wind farms to be built without public subsidy once completed in 2022.
