Equinor Wind US has awarded MMT US Inc. with a contract for geophysical survey services at its offshore wind lease area in New England.
The contract, set to be carried out through the Reach-MMT cooperation, covers high resolution geophysical, benthic surveys and shallow subsurface surveys for the planning and engineering of the lease area.
Work will be performed using the Stril Explorer vessel, equipped with the Surveyor Interceptor SROV.
Survey operations are expected to commence in late summer and run continuously until the second quarter of 2021.
“This award is strategically important as MMT/Reach has been preparing to support our clients in the US offshore wind industry for more than two years now. We have a long experience from the Renewables segment in Europe and developers have shown interest in using our professional support in the US market,” said P-O Sverlinger, CEO MMT.
