In accordance with the FEPA licence, there is a requirement to undertake pre-construction and post-construction bathymetric surveys of a selection of turbine locations and the associated cable corridor to determine rates of scour around the turbines after construction. Emu Limited was commissioned by NEG Micon UK Ltd. to perform a series of hydrographic surveys of these areas in order to determine whether any scouring occurs around the turbines or significant changes to the seabed profile have been made during construction of the wind farm. This project relates to the first post-construction swath survey which was carried out on 16th January 2005 from the vessel Avante.
