Subsea IMR provider, N-Sea, has been awarded a new contract with Galloper Offshore Wind Farm.

The contract for pre-construction unexploded ordnance (UXO) clearance works started in April 2016 and includes UXO risk management, target investigations and clearance on the Galloper Wind Farm, off the coast of Suffolk.

Expected to run for between 3-6 months, the project sees the Siem N-Sea multi-support vessel utilise a WROV to investigate potential UXO targets within the array areas and export cable corridor.

N-Sea’s dive support vessel, Neptunus, will also undertake similar tasks in shallow water areas.

To complete the clearance works, N-Sea has sub-contracted Ordtek (provider of unexploded ordnance risk management for land and marine developments), Modus Seabed Intervention (work class ROV and crew hire) and Ramora UK (Explosive Ordnance Disposal services).

Ordtek recently launched a Mine Map sharing information regarding UXO around the UK coastline. The map illustrates that the Galloper area, was heavily mined in the First and Second World Wars, and has been an active British military training area.
