Export cable survey to begin at Seagreen offshore wind farm

A shallow geotechnical survey is about to begin within the export cable area at the Seagreen Phase 1A wind farm offshore Scotland.

The survey is scheduled to take place from 7 July to 11 July near the shoreline at Cockenzie in the Firth of Forth.

The survey vessel Pulsar will conduct the shallow geotechnical survey involving sediment probing and ROV inspections of the seabed.

Seagreen offshore wind farm, owned by Total and SSE Renewables, is located 27 kilometres off the Angus coastline.

The Scottish wind farm will feature 114 Vestas 10 MW turbines expected to be operational in 2022/2023.

Last year, Nexans secured the contract to supply and install export cables for the 1,075 MW project.
