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.
