TenneT Contracts Fugro for UXO Services

Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Geo-data specialist Fugro announced Tuesday it has been awarded a multimillion dollar contract from TenneT to provide integrated unexploded ordnance (UXO) services at an offshore wind farm development in Dutch coastal waters. The contract follows previous involvement in route survey activities at the site.

Fugro said it will use DP2 multipurpose vessel Atlantis Dweller for the contract. The vessel is permanently equipped with a work class remotely operated vehicle (ROV), providing fast and safe identification of potential UXOs. Other technology includes a sub-bottom imager which can reduce dredge scope, resulting in notable time savings.

Commenting on the identification and clearance (ID & C) project that begins in April, Business Development Manager Martin Valk said, “Fugro has conducted site characterization work on a large number of offshore wind farm developments around the globe. Against a backdrop of continued growth in Europe, we are enhancing our ability to respond to demands for UXO ID & C services by bringing the Atlantis Dweller into our European vessel fleet.

“The vessel has been specifically configured for the offshore renewables market in Europe and is ideally suited for safe and efficient UXO ID & C services. Utilizing the vessel and the onboard technology enables us to deliver operational excellence underpinned by the highest levels of efficiency and safety.”
