Denmark’s government is seeking to grow the country’s offshore wind capacity by 4 GW by 2030, with Fugro’s geodata used to support future bids in the area.
The company has been working on the North Sea Energy Islands project for Energinet throughout this year.
The new data will provide insights into the seabed and subsurface conditions, reducing uncertainty and helping installers determine the optimal locations for wind turbines and export cables.
When fieldwork starts in 2024, Fugro will mobilize various geotechnical vessels equipped with tools such as the SEACALF Mk V Deepdrive system for seabed cone penetration tests and the WISON Mk V Ecodrive.
Work will then continue into 2025, with further processing, laboratory testing and reporting of results.
