Carnegie Collects Geophysical Data over Torbay Site

Carnegie Clean Energy is undertaking a geophysical site investigation over the proposed Torbay site at Albany in Western Australia.

The purpose of the geophysical survey is to establish the offshore geology and suitable strata thickness to inform the technical and economic feasibility of the proposed CETO 6 foundation design.

The survey was awarded to EGS Survey, utilizing the vessel Business Class owned and operated by Empress Marine.

In addition, South Coast Natural Resource Management of Albany is providing a local expert in marine fauna who has been on board the vessel to ensure the operations conform with all state and federal legislation regarding marine wildlife, the company noted.

The planned reconnaissance lines have now been completed and collected very accurate bathymetry data, seabed sediment identification and geological data to a depth of approximately 50 meters below seabed. This has allowed for the identification of basement granites and the required thickness of younger rocks that are preferred for the foundations.

In the coming days a detailed grid of data will be acquired that will provide depth to granite and thickness maps of the younger strata.
