In October 2013 Environmental Scientifics Group (ESG) were commissioned by Dong Energy UK (DONG) to conduct an intertidal geophysical survey over an area of foreshore at Rhyl in Denbighshire. The area to be surveyed is the proposed cable landing point from an extension to the existing Burbo Bank Offshore Windfarm site. A detailed specification was provided which stated the objective of the investigation was as follows: 1. Detect Potential UXO’s 2. Provide Topography for the entire investigation area 3. Provide sub-bottom data This will be used to assist with the design, consenting and construction of the proposed export cable route. The scope of work for the intertidal operations, specified the following: 1. Multi-sensor magnetometer survey 2. RTK GPS Survey 3. Seismic refraction survey of the centreline of the proposed cable route. The survey was carried out in accordance with the specification and works were conducted between 27 November 2013 and 13 December 2013.
