Fugro Awarded Major Offshore Wind Contract With Energinet to Support Denmark’s Renewable Energy Goals

Fugro has secured a contract with Energinet to use their geotechnical site investigations in the North Sea I offshore wind development. The Danish government plans to increase offshore wind capacity by at least 4GW by 2030, and that’s why they need reliable data like Fugro’s will provide. This award follows Fugro’s success on the North Sea Energy Islands project for Energinet throughout 2022, which is the company’s first-of-its-kind work.

Planning to install a wind turbine or cable on the seabed? Well, luck doesn’t always go your way. With Geo-data from Fugro, you’ll be able to plan projects as far ahead of time as possible. We’ll provide crucial insights into seabed conditions that will reduce uncertainty and help installers make informed decisions about where wind turbines will operate most efficiently. This can only happen by mobilizing multiple geotechnical vessels in some of the most remote parts of Earth’s oceans. The fieldwork is expected to continue well into 2025 with further processing, laboratory testing and reporting of results to follow at a later date.

Energinet is proud to see Fugro come back on its project after a long absence. Since their last engagement, the Finnish company has done great work supporting multiple offshore wind farm projects in Denmark and Energinet believes that future collaborations will continue with the same high standard of professionalism and technical quality.

Fugro, the leading company for offshore wind, has been awarded for its innovative technology and services. To fuel growth in this rapidly expanding industry, Fugro has become a leading provider of engineering and management expertise – including smart energy solutions and innovations – to help accelerate the growth of renewable energy markets. A unique position that comes with being part of Energinet and supporting Danish wind energy.
