Geotechnical Engineering and Marine Surveys Limited (GEMS) were contracted by E.ON (COMPANY) to perform geotechnical investigations at proposed wind turbine locations in the North Sea, approximately 8.0km east from the Yorkshire Coast. E.ON are planning the development of a wind farm. GEMS investigated soil conditions onsite for the emplacement of a proposed met mast. The required geotechnical investigation fieldwork consisted of two boreholes, the locations of which were UXO-5 and UXO-8. Fieldwork operations were conducted from the vessel MV Investigator which is owned by GEMS International NV and managed by Chapman International Services Ltd. The vessel is provided to GEMS under exclusive long term charter. Fieldwork operations were carried out from the 8th to the 20th of February 2009. The objectives of the specified geotechnical site survey fieldworks were to identify the underlying soils at the locations and to allow their geotechnical properties to be determined and enable engineering analyses in connection with piled foundations for the proposed met mast.
