DONG Hires Clinton for Hornsea Project Three Survey
Sweden-based Clinton Marine Survey will conduct geophysical scope of work for DONG Energy’s Hornsea Project Three wind farm.
The area, is approximately 760 km² and is up to 150km offshore.
Clinton Marine Survey’s CEO, Martin Wikmar, said: “This is the right step in our long term plan and also a high quality mark for our services to be working together with clients such as DONG Energy. “
DONG Energy’s site investigation project manager, Roland Gotfredsen, commented: “We have awarded Clinton as they have provided us with an interesting offer both in regards to technology, price and quality – and also thinking out of the box regarding the set-up of the survey. Now we need to get to sea and deliver on all accounts, also when it comes to a safe execution of the survey.”
Hornsea Project Three is located to the east of Hornsea Project One and Hornsea Project Two. According to DONG Energy, with a potential maximum capacity of up to 2.4GW, Hornsea Project Three Offshore Wind Farm could generate enough electricity to power over 2 million UK homes per year.
Hornsea Project Three is currently seeking to enter the planning process, with a consent application expected to be submitted in 2018. DONG Energy said that If this is successful, construction of the offshore wind farm is anticipated to take place between 2022 and 2025.
