Presentation Webinar Geotechnical & Geophysical Assessment HKZ III&IV (July 5, 2018) and link to watch the webinar

On 5 July 2018 we presented you the geophysical and geotechnical assessment of the Hollandse Kust (zuid) Wind Farm Sites III & IV (HKZWFS III&IV). Martijn Klein (Fugro) explained the soil conditions and the geological context at the Hollandse Kust (zuid) WFZ based on the geophysical and geotechnical surveys in this Wind Farm Zone.

This assessment is comparable with the assessment of the Hollandse Kust (zuid) Wind Farm Sites I & II (HKZWFS I & II) and aims i.e. to produce a geological ground model resulting from the geophysical and geotechnical surveys. Furthermore, this assessment confirms the soil engineering properties at HKZWFS III&IV required by developers to progress with their geotechnical foundation designs, other general design and installation requirements for the wind farms, as well as those relating to cable installation.

As with Hollandse Kust (zuid) Wind Farm Sites I&II, the geophysical survey for HKZWFS III&IV includes bathymetric, seismic and geological data. The geotechnical survey uses intrusive techniques to gain an insight into the characteristics of the subsoil. Two general types of measurements are being performed: cone penetration tests (CPT) and boreholes. All deliverables from both the geophysical and geotechnical surveys are to be found on this website.
