Osiris Projects were commissioned in October 2013 by Centrica Renewable Energy Ltd. (CREL) to carry out post-construction surveys on the LINCS Offshore Wind Farm (OWF) and associated export cable route. There were six key elements of the surveys: LINCS OWF repeat pre-construction benthic baseline survey LINCS OWF drill arising mounds benthic survey LINCS OWF export cables LINCS OWF site post-construction survey focussing on the Inter Array Cables (IAC) LINCS OWF site post-construction survey focussing on the No Cable Zones (NCZ) LINCS OWF site scour surveys at turbines LS61 – LS63. The aims of the surveys were to: To repeat the pre-construction benthic baseline survey (2010) in order to satisfy Marine Licence Annex 1. To sample four of the sixteen drill arising mounds present on the site. To ground truth any distinct seabed features consistent with Sabellaria reef formations, identified via SSS within the No Cable Zones (NCZ). To undertake a 100% coverage swath bathymetric survey around a sample of three adjacent turbines, 61, 62 and 63. To assess the extent if any changes to bed form morphology along the interarray cable routes.
