Vattenfall Wind Power Limited (Vattenfall) is developing the Thanet Offshore Windfarm off the coast of Kent in
the southern North Sea.
Vattenfall requested Fugro EMU Limited (FEMU) to perform geophysical, benthic and geotechnical
site investigations to provide soils information to assist in expansion of the Thanet Windfarm site.
Fugro EMU Limited subcontracted Fugro Engineers B.V to perform the geotechnical site investigation
and Fugro Engineers B.V (FEBV) subcontracted Fugro GeoConsulting Limited (FGCLTD) to provide
onshore laboratory and reporting services. The fieldwork was performed from the geotechnical drilling
vessel MV Bucentaur. Seabed cone penetration test (CPT) and vibrocore sampling (VC) operations
were performed from the MV Bucentaur from 12 September to 16 September 2016.
Plate 1.1 presents a vicinity map showing the general location of the investigated site and Plate 1.2
presents a detailed location plan showing the positions of the boreholes and in situ tests.
