Description

Gardline Environmental Ltd (GEL) carried out a benthic characterisation survey for Forewind Ltd (hereafter referred to as Forewind) throughout Tranche B and the associated Teesside Cable Corridor (TCC) routes (Northern and Southern) for the Dogger Bank Offshore Wind Farm (OWF) Project. Forewind aims to develop a series of wind farms on Dogger Bank in four stages known as tranches (Forewind, 2012a). Survey work for Tranche B was conducted during July 2012 onboard the MV Vigilant with the survey of
TCC routes conducted during September 2012 and October 2012 onboard the MV Vigilant for the offshore section and during November 2012 on the MV Titan Endeavour for the inshore section of the route.

Within Tranche B, a total of 55 stations were pre-selected by the Client to undertake
camera investigation of the habitat and grab sampling for particle size and faunal
analyses, 11 of which were also to be sampled for contaminant analyses. Along the TCC
routes, 120 stations were pre-selected for camera investigation, of which 74 were selected for grab sampling for particle size and faunal analyses, including 24 stations for contaminant analyses.
