On the instructions and acting on behalf of Dong Energy (the Client) a site investigation has been carried out by Fugro at the proposed landfall location of a High Voltage (HV) export cable for the proposed Race Bank Offshore Wind Farm, close to the town of Sutton Bridge, Lincolnshire. The objective of the investigation was to determine the ground conditions at the site and to provide information that would assist the Client in the geological and geotechnical appraisal of the site for the purposes of designing a potential Horizontal Directional Drill (HDD) route. Subsequently the Client also requested the assessment of the ground conditions for a potential shallow trenched/trenchless installation approach for the cable. The scope of the investigation was determined by the Client in conjunction with Fugro.
