The consortium behind Ossian floating offshore wind farm has awarded the contract for geotechnical investigations to #Fugro and #OceanInfinity.

The Ossian project is being delivered by a partnership of Scottish renewable energy developer SSE Renewables, Japanese conglomerate Marubeni Corporation and Danish fund management company Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).

Set to be located across 858 sq km of seabed in waters off the east coast of Scotland, the project could power up to 6m homes and offset up to 7.5m tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each year.

Fugro will focus on downhole geotechnical sampling and in situ cone penetration testing, while Ocean Infinity will focus on the seabed scope which will include shallow vibro-cores and deep push seabed cone penetration tests.

Fugro will use its purpose-built geotechnical drilling vessel, the Fugro Scout, while Ocean Infinity plans to use its multi-purpose support vessel Stril Explorer.

Both surveys will commence this Spring. Ocean Infinity should complete its survey work by the end of May while Fugro is said to expect its downhole scope survey to be completed at the start of July.
