Fugro Kicks Off Bay State Wind Site Survey

Fugro’s multi purpose drilling, well intervention and geotechnical vessel, Fugro Synergy, has started a geotechnical survey campaign on behalf of DONG Energy at the proposed site for the Bay State Wind offshore wind farm.

A 15-days survey will involve seabed testings in 18 specific locations which should provide information for engineering of future wind turbines. The survey will consist of a series of shallow vibrocore holes, cone penetration tests (CPTs) and core samples.

Bay State Wind is a utility-scale offshore wind farm, located 15 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, with water depths of between 40 – 50 meters.

For the next three years DONG Energy will collect data and perform an assessment of the physical, biological and economic characteristics of this BOEM lease area to evaluate the suitability for the construction of an offshore wind farm.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
