Crown Estate publishes BGS geological assessment of Irish Sea


Published Dec 15, 2015
British Geological Survey

The Crown Estate has published a study by the British Geological Survey summarising the geological conditions of the Irish Sea that will provide a valuable resource for anyone considering development of offshore infrastructure in the region.

The study follows The Crown Estate's publication of a wide range of data collected for the discontinued Celtic Array offshore wind farm, such as geotechnical and geophysical data as well as sediment sampling (available on the Marine Date Exchange). BGS undertook a detailed assessment of the Irish Sea, combining the Celtic Array data with the best available data from other sources, such as BGS legacy data, regional reports and site investigations by other industries.

The assessment is intended to provide an introduction to developers interested in the region to help inform broad decisions as to ground suitability, highlighting a range of geological factors to be considered in development activity located at a depth of between 0 and 50m of seabed.
