The company will work on the 576MW Gwynt y Mor wind farm off Wales’ north coast, burying the 63 inter-array cables and carrying out a post-work survey. CT Offshore, which is handling the cabling for the project, handed Furgo the contract.

Fugro did not name the second project, which it said is off England’s east coast, but indicated that the work would be of a similar nature.

Work on both projects will be done consecutively, with work starting imminently and expected to be competed by the third quarter of the year.

The work at Gwynt y Mor will be carried out by one of Fugro’s specially-built Q1400 trenching machines. It will be deployed from the Fugro Saltire vessel.
