Site Appraisal and Concept Design

Site appraisal and concept design (1)

Early access to insights into the proposed site during the planning phase is key to derisking your project and reducing uncertainties in concept development.

Our site appraisal and concept development solutions provide industry-leading Geo-data and actionable insights on local conditions, site-specific ground conditions, geohazards and environmental constraints. Our in-house geoconsultants work as an extension of your team, analysing and advising on risks as you make your project decisions.

Foundation Design

Offshore wind turbine foundations are designed to withstand extreme conditions for the entire life cycle. Site conditions, geohazards and installation risks are unique for each site development and a comprehensive understanding is essential to optimise foundation design.

Fugro’s Geo-data expertise and foundation consultancy enable reliable and efficient foundation designs and reduce installation risks. From a desktop study to data acquisition or foundation scope, our foundation design solutions ensure you have the data you need for optimal designs.

Power Cable Design

Power cable design

Subsea power cables are situated in high-risk environments that require an in-depth understanding of the seafloor and sub-surface conditions.

We acquire Geo-data and apply our expertise on metocean, geology, geophysics, geotechnics and GIS to advise on reliable and optimal power cable design. A detailed risk assessment, ground model and cable burial assessment provide the insights you need to mitigate installation risks and improve reliability of cable performance. Our power cable solutions enable early and reliable cable routing, reduce cable installation and operational risks.

UXO Risk Mitigation

Unexploded ordnance (UXO) is a key threat to marine developments globally and can impact on safe and timely project delivery. Fugro provides a complete UXO risk mitigation solution through an integrated approach to optimise your target lists and reduce the need for visual inspection.

Our state-of-the-art mitigation tools, combined with our in-house experts, provide you with actionable insights into the marine environment and a tailored mitigation strategy for the safe survey, identification, and clearance of UXO threats.

Foundation Installation

Foundation Installation

Installation of offshore wind turbine foundations can be challenging due to harsh environmental conditions, and requires precision and experience to avoid scheduling risks. We provide specialist survey, positioning and monitoring services for foundation piling; our Inclinocam  technology provides safe, real-time and accurate measurements for efficient installation of your foundations and optimised vessel time.

For jacket installations, our specialist pile installation frame enables accurate positioning and monitoring during pile installation and our large diameter Vertical Boring Machine (VBM) enables seamless pile drilling in challenging seabed conditions. Tailored to jacket foundation installation, our rock socket calliper and large diameter pile relief drilling ensure safe and reliable piling.

Power Cable Installation

The successful installation and repair of subsea power cables relies on mitigating risks to ensure safe operations over the asset’s lifetime. We provide extensive survey services for safe and efficient installation of power cables and on-time project delivery for your offshore wind farm.

By combining our survey expertise with our global fleet of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and uncrewed surface vessels (USVs), we deliver efficient installation operations and provide accurate data to support the lay and trenching of power cables. Fugro’s global fleet of jack-up barges also support cable landfall works in shallow water and intertidal areas.

Operations & Maintenance (O&M)

Operations & Maintenance

O&M accounts for approximately 30 % of overall offshore wind farm costs and efficient O&M activities can achieve significant cost savings. By utilising our fleet of ROVs and USVs, our range of inspection and monitoring services optimise uptime and reduce operational risks for your offshore wind farm.

Our bespoke structural monitoring solutions also enable real-time and continuous integrity monitoring of assets to provide early indications of fatigue or element failure. Our Geo-data expertise allow the integration of all available data from site investigation to asset inspection and monitoring, into a 3D digital twin of your wind farm. This enables condition based and preventative maintenance systems to be implemented. 

Decommissioning

Once an asset has reached the end of its operational life, it must be safely decommissioned. Decommissioning must be planned at the initial stages of an offshore wind farm development to prevent complications and high costs.
