Fugro in Another Geotech Survey for US Wind Development

Fugro has been awarded a contract by Vineyard Wind, formerly named OffshoreMW, to perform a marine geotechnical site investigation within its wind development lease, offshore Massachusetts.

The company’s 105-meter drilling vessel M/V Fugro Synergy will perform the study, which will include numerous seabed CPTs and exploration boreholes, along with sampling and downhole CPTs.

Following the fieldwork, a program of laboratory testing and reporting will be performed by Fugro’s offices in Houston TX and Norfolk VA.

The site investigation will be used to verify geologic ground models that Vineyard Wind is developing based on previous geophysical data collected from the 166,866-acre lease area.

The investigation is planned to start before the end of October and take around two to three weeks.

To remind, Fugro Synergy also this moth started a geotechnical survey campaign on behalf of DONG Energy at the proposed site for the Bay State Wind offshore wind farm.
