Fugro to conduct site investigations for east coast US offshore wind development

Fugro has been awarded the contract by Vineyard Wind, formerly named OffshoreMW, to perform a marine geotechnical site investigation within its wind development lease, offshore Massachusetts.

26 Oct 2016
Norfolk, VA

Fugro’s state-of-the-art, 105-metre drilling vessel M/V Fugro Synergy will perform the study, which will include numerous seabed CPTs and exploration boreholes, along with sampling and downhole CPTs. Following the fieldwork, a programme of laboratory testing and reporting will be performed by Fugro’s offices in Houston TX and Norfolk VA.

The site investigation will be used to verify geologic ground models that Vineyard Wind is developing based on previous geophysical data collected from the 166,866-acre lease area. The investigation is planned to start before the end of October and take around two to three weeks.
