Offshore Wind Farm export cable route: Geophysical Survey Complete

Posted 12 April 2021

SEP Hydrographic have recently completed a comprehensive geophysical survey of an export cable route landing for an offshore wind farm on the east coast.

Comprising multiple disciplines, the scope of work included both marine and land-based operations. From the company's own survey vessel 'Pulsar', multibeam bathymetry, high-resolution side scan sonar data, magnetometer and sub bottom profiler data were acquired. In the intertidal zone, the team performed a seismic refraction survey.

The site operations were mobilised in January 2021 and completed on schedule, with the resultant datasets delivered on time.

SEP Hydrographic Director John Sadler comments: "After only launching the business in mid-2020, we are thrilled to have been involved with such a significant project. Our team has worked hard to ensure the project remained on schedule and we're delighted with the data quality. We hope to become more involved in offshore wind developments as our capability and skill-set are well-aligned to these requirements."
