Fugro Provides UXO Services for Dutch Offshore Wind Farm
Fugro has been awarded a contract by TenneT for the delivery of UXO services at offshore wind farm development in Dutch coastal waters.
The contract follows from the previous involvement in route survey activities at the site.
Fugro will utilize Atlantis Dweller vessel, equipped with a work-class remotely operated vehicle, to provide fast and safe identification of potential UXOs.
Business development manager Martin Valk said, “Fugro has conducted site characterization work on a large number of offshore wind farm developments around the globe. Against a backdrop of continued growth in Europe, we are enhancing our ability to respond to demands for UXO ID & C services by bringing the Atlantis Dweller into our European vessel fleet.
“The vessel has been specifically configured for the offshore renewables market in Europe and is ideally suited for safe and efficient UXO ID & C services. Utilizing the vessel and the onboard technology enables us to deliver operational excellence underpinned by the highest levels of efficiency and safety.”
The project is scheduled to begin in April.
