Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has been hired by the Danish company Geo to supply a vessel for the preliminary geotechnical investigations for the Thor offshore wind project in the Danish North Sea.
Fred. Olsen Windcarrier will utilize the Liftboat Jill to support Geo with the offshore borehole campaign.
Jill will provide a stable platform for the campaign which is scheduled to start June 2020. The purpose of the assignment is to acquire geotechnical and geological information about the subsurface to be used as a basis for developers to assess the soil conditions for the Thor project.
“We are very excited to be working with Geo on this project. The two companies combine the best of maritime and offshore wind experience with the most extensive expertise within the fields of soil and seabed investigations.”Thomas Lund, sales manager at Fred. Olsen Windcarrier.
“We are looking forward to do the first geotechnical work on Thor for Energinet.dk this summer. Our new cooperation with Fred Olsen Windcarrier will ensure a very safe and robust solution for the drilling operations.”Jens Brink Clausen, department director at Geo.
