Description

On the instructions of E.ON Climate & Renewables UK, Osiris Projects were
commissioned to undertake a pre-construction geophysical and scour monitoring survey
covering the proposed Robin Rigg Offshore Wind Farm development site. The survey
was undertaken during the period 26th March to 27th April 2008.
High-resolution side scan sonar, swath multi-beam and single beam bathymetry and
magnetometer data were acquired along all survey lines, which were run at 100m centres,
with cross lines at 200m centres, in order to accurately map the seabed within the wind
farm development area.
The primary objectives of the survey were to map bathymetry and seabed features,
including the presence of any magnetic anomalies within the wind farm area.
A number of additional works were also undertaken; these included more detailed
bathymetric data collection around a selected number of recently installed turbine bases
to monitor the extents of seabed scouring. More detailed bathymetric data collection was
also carried out around the location of the proposed sub-station and its close
surroundings, where inter-array cables will be more densely concentrated.
Detailed bathymetric data was also collected around the existing meteorological mast.
This is located to the NE of the development area.
A seabed level comparison was undertaken using the bathymetric data from the 2007 and
2008 surveys.
Detailed bathymetric data was also collected around a series of proposed turbine
locations, where spud-leg depressions from the jack-up rig were causing concern.
