Fugro Synergy to Carry Out Bay State Wind Geotech Survey

For the next three years DONG Energy will collect data and perform an assessment of the physical, biological and economic characteristics of BOEM lease area OCS-A 0500 south of Martha’s Vineyard to evaluate the suitability for the construction of an offshore wind farm.

RV Fugro Synergy will be conducting a geotechnical survey in the area for 15 days (weather permitting) starting about October 7, 2016.

The survey will involve seabed testings in 18 specific locations identified in the previous survey. This information will assist engineering of future wind turbines.

Each testing station may require the vessel to remain stationary at each location for approximately 2 to 24 hours depending on conditions and testing activity. Operations will proceed 24 hours a day.

This Ground Investigation will consist of a series of shallow Vibrocore Holes, Cone Penetration Tests (CPTs) and core samples.

Mariners are requested to provide RV Fugro Synergy a wide berth of one half mile at all times while on site. Passing vessels are requested to reduce speed if possible.
