Bibby maps bombs at Saint-Brieuc
UXO survey of proposed 496MW project site will take about 11 days
Ailes Marines has appointed UK outfit Bibby Hydromap to carry out an unexploded ordnance (UXO) survey of the proposed 496MW Bay of Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm site off the coast of Brittany.
The work will start this month and take about 11 days, Ailes Marines said.
The 27.5-metre Bibby Tethra (pictured) will carry out the work using nine Geometrics G882 magnetometers mounted on three Katria ScanFish remotely operated towed vehicles.
The survey is a mandatory prerequisite for the geotechnical campaign to help reduce UXO risk at the site.
The project will feature 62 Adwen 8MW turbines.
Ailes Marines is a consortium of Iberdrola, RES and Caisse des Depots.
