NGI and SAND Geophysics will use available geological, geophysical and geotechnical data to develop an integrated ground model covering the site. The work will be done during 2020 and early 2021. TNWWFZ is located 30.2 nautical miles (56 km) off the north coast of the Netherlands.
The ground model will efficiently capture the variation in ground conditions at the site and provide profiles for key geotechnical parameters required for design and planning of offshore installations. The model aims at reducing uncertainty and facilitating an understanding of project risk. The collaboration between NGI and SAND Geophysics will allow the project team to go beyond the current state-of-the-art for multi-disciplinary data integration in offshore renewables site investigations.
Wind Energy roadmap
TNWWFZ is part of the Dutch government’s Offshore Wind Energy roadmap. The Netherlands is fully committed to see 49 TWh (about 11 GW) of offshore wind energy per year by 2030.
NGI and SAND are excited to be part of this project and look forward to working with the key stakeholders.
The Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI) is a leading international centre for research and consulting within the geosciences. NGI develops optimum solutions for society, and offers expertise on the behaviour of soil, rock and snow and their interaction with the natural and built environment. NGI works within the markets Offshore energy; Building, construction and transportation; Natural hazards, and Environmental Engineering. NGI is a private foundation with office and laboratory in Oslo, branch office in Trondheim, and daughter companies in Houston, Texas, USA, and Perth, Western Australia. NGI was established in 1953.
