Offshore Site Investigations
Through September to November 2021 three offshore surveys are being undertaken by Moray West Offshore Wind Farm to conduct offshore site investigation works.
The first survey on the Fugro Scout began on 3 September for a total duration of two weeks. The survey included a series of cone penetration tests (CPT) conducted at proposed offshore wind turbine and substation locations with the data being used for substructure pile design.
The second survey on the Northern Franklin started on 8 September for a total duration of seven weeks. The vessel conducted a geophysical survey on the export, inter-array and interconnector routes with the data being used for detailed cable routing and burial assessments.
The third survey on the Northern Cecilia commenced on 12 October and is expected to take seven weeks. The vessel is conducting a geotechnical survey using CPT and vibrocore testing along all cable routes. The collected data will be used for burial assessments.
