Description

Under CTR-001 signed 17th May 2016, RES Offshore have been commissioned by Blyth Offshore
Demonstrator Ltd (BODL) to perform a bathymetry analysis for the Blyth Offshore Demonstration
Project on the following data sets; 
- 2016, GEO, Geotechnical - Array and Export Cable Route Survey
- 2015, EGS, Geophysical - Array 2 Survey
- 2015, EGS, Geophysical - Export Cable Route Survey
- 2014, Fugro, Geotechnical Survey
- 2011, EGS, Geophysical Survey and;
- 2010, EGS, Geophysical Survey
The objective of the exercise was to verify if the depths initially used for construction design
purposes (sourced from the 2015 EGS geophysical surveys) represent the the most accurate
depths to be used at this stage as there was an apparent mismatch with the 2014 Fugro depth
data.
In order to perform an investigation in to the mismatch the survey reports and data were
analysed to determine their integrity both vertically and horizontally.
The report in this series presents the outputs and findings from the bathymetry and positional analysis review
together with associated results.
