NOOTDORP, the Netherlands – Germany’s Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (Das Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie) has awarded Fugro a multi-year geotechnical site investigation contract in the German North Sea and Baltic Sea.
The program is expected to be completed in three phases over the next three years and comprises geotechnical investigations at potential offshore wind farm development areas.
The site characterization services will provide geotechnical data acquisition from multiple geotechnical drilling vessels, and geotechnical laboratory testing and reporting by the company’s German and UK laboratories.
The total contract value is about EUR 25 million ($28 million).
Project preparations are under way, with the target start date in mid-September. Fugro’s survey department will provide unexploded ordnance services before the geotechnical drilling vessels Fugro Scout and Gargano execute the fieldwork.
