Interface with offshore wind
The North Sea saw considerable military action over two World Wars. There were intensive mine laying operations in both wars. Mine field clearance after each period of conflict only had limited effectiveness. Also Allied and German bombing of vessels, jettisoning of bombs, submarine operations, naval surface conflicts and munitions dumping have led to a considerable amount of UXO still remaining at the seabed. These UXO hinder a safe construction of offshore wind projects. Prior to the installation operations of wind farms, platforms and export cables a UXO mitigation plan needs to be developed to ensure a safe and cost effective mitigation of the risks posed by remaining UXO.
The NjordIC employees were involved in UXO advice and clearance operations in most Dutch and multiple German offshore wind projects.
