SeaRoc Group has been awarded a variation to provide detailed geographic information system (GIS) seabed analysis for E.ON Humber Gateway offshore wind farm.
E.ON requested the variation to receive more detailed information about the seabed condition as a whole and at detailed locations through the use of spatial analysis. This information should enable Humber Gateway and other agencies to support critical decision making, manage risks and minimise potential impacts to the seabed.
Amanda Forbes, senior GIS analyst/developer at SeaRoc, said: “We have worked with E.ON since 2012 providing GIS and associated services to their offshore wind farms Robin Rigg and Scroby Sands and are pleased to extend our services to the Humber Gateway project. This analysis package will provide detailed information regarding the seabed’s condition within and around the wind farm area.”
SeaRoc Group has provided E.ON GIS data management services since 2012 under a larger framework contract. Provision of data analysis services started at the beginning of January 2018 and the work will last for 8 weeks.
