Description

DONG Energy Power contracted EGSi to undertake a hydrographic and geophysical survey in
the post-construction (operational) phase of the project to determine, changes to seabed
morphology and classify targets on the seabed, including exposed cables and rock dumping
areas, along the export cable route. he data acquisition took place between September-October 2014 on the 
research vessel, MV Xploer. To meet this objective EGS conducted a multibeam high frequency bathymetric survey combined with seabed mapping and sub-surface hazard
identification using side-scan sonar (SSS).
