The new UXO survey contract commences this summer and will continue for about two years.

Fugro has been awarded a joint contract with Boskalis for survey and identification of unexploded ordnance (UXO) in the Borssele Wind Farm Zone.

The multi-million Euro contract, for Dutch transmission systems operator TennetT TSO B.V., includes a specialized survey and identification work in relation to cable routes for the planned grid connection between TenneT’s two offshore platforms and its high-voltage substation onshore.

“Our project team will deliver a strong and reliable turnkey UXO identification solution,” said Gertjan Paff, Fugro’s Regional Project Director for Europe. “By integrating vessels and innovative systems developed in-house, we have successfully executed similar marine site characterization projects in recent years.”

The new award follows a number of contracts undertaken by Fugro at the Borssele offshore wind farm site since early 2015, where work-scopes have included geophysical surveys, geotechnical site investigations, integrated geological modeling, and measuring meteorological and oceanographic conditions.
