UXOcontrol, the Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) risk mitigation solutions expert, has completed UXO identification campaign for the Kincardine offshore wind farm.
Kincardine offshore wind farm, with a nominal capacity of 50 MW, is located approximately 15 kilometres off the south-east coast of Aberdeen. The wind farm comprises offshore floating wind turbine structures, an offshore export cable, a landfall and an onshore export cable.
UXOcontrol’s first UK contract as the rebranded joint venture of N-Sea and BODAC, was awarded by Cobra Wind International, a subsidiary of Spanish developer and construction company Grupo Cobra, which has been contracted to undertake the engineering, design, supply, construction and commissioning of the wind farm.
Following geographical survey works, the identification campaign began in May 2020, with the mobilization of the company’s fully-equipped UXO clearance vessel, the Noordhoek Pathfinder (NHP), which conducted works over a period of four weeks.
“The renewable energy sector is one of UXOcontrol’s key markets and we are excited to showcase our capabilities and expertise by working on a project as significant as the Kincardine offshore wind farm. Our experts offer an unrivaled level of international UXO experience and we have worked closely with Cobra Wind International to eliminate any UXO-related risks, ensuring the successful completion of the Kincardine project.”N-Sea CEO, Arno van Poppel.
