MMT has secured a contract from Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) to perform a geophysical soil investigation of the Ten Noorden van de Waddeneilanden wind farm zone.
The objective of the geophysical soil investigation is to contribute to the bathymetrical, morphological and geological understanding of the area. Ultimately the data will be used by offshore wind farm developers to prepare bids for this site.
Project preparations are currently underway, with the fieldwork planned to be performed in July and August from MMT’s survey vessel Franklin, the company informed through social media.
The geophysical survey comprises of the collection of high resolution bathymetry and seabed imagery, in addition to determining the exact, current position of existing cables and pipelines.
MMTs CCO, Nils Ingvarson, said: “The contract award underscores the capabilities of MMT within the renewables energy sector. We are delighted to be awarded this highly demanding survey assignment.”
