Fugro Gears for Hollandse Kust Noord Survey

Fugro is set to begin a site characterization program at the Hollandse Kust (noord) Wind Farm zone.

Carried out under a further contract for the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl, part of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy), the geotechnical workscope comprises seabed investigations and borehole drilling at two lots.

Other deliverables include standard and advanced laboratory testing and an integrated geological/geotechnical soil model which will be used by future developers of the wind farm to prepare their bids.

The fieldwork takes place between April and June from Fugro vessels including geotechnical drilling vessel, Fugro Synergy.

Deployment of two of Fugro’s most recent technical innovations should enhance safety and bring improved operational efficiency to the project. The team of geophysical, geological and geotechnical experts will complement the company’s new technology to optimize an integrated deliverable.

“Our geotechnical innovations will ensure that we deliver data of the highest quality to RVO.nl and obtain it in a safe manner,” said Sven Plasman, Fugro’s project director at Fugro. “From Fugro Synergy we’ll operate the Fugro SEADEVIL, an offshore geotechnical tool that optimises vertical control during drilling and enables our team to acquire high quality samples. The seabed cone penetration testing (CPT) will be carried out using our SEACALF MkIV system; its coiled rod requires no manual handling, ensuring safer operations, while the continuous drive system yields high quality data. Both of these innovative systems are fundamental to reducing operational costs and are integral elements of Fugro’s specialised support for the offshore wind industry.”

Featuring Anadarko, BP, Shell, Chevron, BHGE and Oceaneering, the conference aims to help operators transition to the latest compliance updates, WI systems and business models that enhance safety, quicken well access and improve commerciality.

Across two days, more than 200 delegates, 15 exhibitors and 30 speakers will network together and create solutions to some of the most pertinent industry challenges right now, through a conference programme focused on:

  1. Clarifying compliance updates
  2. Quicker well access and safer well control
  3. ​Understanding HPHT well intervention (systems)
  4. Forecasting well intervention activity, discussing new commercial models and comparing platform options
  5. Best practice riserless well intervention
  6. ​The latest well intervention equipment
