Fugro Starts Surveying North Holland Offshore Wind Zone

Dutch geo-consultancy Fugro has begun an area survey of the Hollandse Kust (Noord) Wind Farm Zone in the North Sea, in preparation for the offshore wind farm tender scheduled for 2019.

With a total capacity of 700 MW, the wind farm will be able to supply electricity to an estimated 800,000 households.

On behalf of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl), Fugro is conducting a geophysical survey of the area to map the seabed and position of existing cables and pipelines, as well as the possible presence of shipwrecks and any other obstacles.

Fugro has conducted similar surveys in the past for the Borssele and Hollandse Kust (Zuid) Wind Farm Zones. The results of the survey will be used by wind farm developers to prepare their project tenders.

Hollandse Kust (Noord) is the last of the 3 North Sea wind farm zones to be surveyed as part of the Government’s Offshore Wind Energy Roadmap programme.
