Description

The work includes a seabed and a sub-seabed survey of the construction area and the export cable corridor. The main aims with the survey are to:
     -Map and quantify the possibility for unexploded ordnance (UXO) within the turbine construction area and the export cable corridor.
     -Acquire and interpret high quality seabed and sub-seabed data for project planning/execution, including shallow geology, local topography, seabed sediment distribution, seabed features, seabed obstructions, wrecks and archaeological sites, possible occurrence of Sabellaria Spinolusa, evaluation of possible mobile sediments, etc.
     -Improve the geological/geotechnical understanding of the shallow stratigraphy and soil properties in the turbine site and export corridor for planning/execution of turbine foundation installation and cable routing, installation and protection.
