Description

Items of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) are regularly encountered within the North Sea and rarely
become inert or lose their high explosives effectiveness with age. There is therefore, a risk that
UXO could be encountered at the Offshore Wind Demonstrator Site, Blyth.
Cathie Associates Limited, on behalf of NaREC, has commissioned 6 Alpha Associates Limited to
conduct a detailed UXO desk based study for this wind farm development.
