Fugro has been awarded two contracts to perform cable burial and survey operations at two offshore wind farm sites in the UK. At RWE Innogy’s flagship Gwynt y Môr Offshore Wind Farm in Liverpool Bay, off the North Wales coast, the work for CT Offshore A/S involves the burial and post-burial survey of 63 inter-array cables.
The second contract involves a similar workscope at a wind farm located off the UK’s East coast. The projects will run consecutively with work commencing in January and completing in the 3rd quarter of 2014.
To execute the work programme, one of Fugro’s two Q1400 trenching spreads will be mobilised onto the vessel Fugro Saltire, which is also equipped with two FCV 3000 work class ROV systems and a full data acquisition and processing package, providing high quality pre- and post-trenching charting and documentation.
