Kriegers Flak OWF Cleared of UXOs

Danish grid operator Energinet.dk, in cooperation with Boskalis, has completed unexploded ordnance (UXO) survey in preparation for the grid connection of the Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm.

The aim of the UXO survey was to reduce the risk at the cable installation routes.

The cables are a part of the Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution (CGS), which aims to interconnect the Danish and German grid via two offshore wind farms at Kriegers Flak and Baltic 2.

During the survey, undertaken in October 2016, a number of objects were identified.

Five objects have been neutralized by the Royal Danish Navy.

The Kriegers Flak is located approximately 45 kilometers from the coast of Rodvig, in the Baltic Sea.

Kriegers Flak plans to start operating between 2018 and 2020 and should help more than double Denmark’s wind power energy capacity.

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.
