UXO Project for TenneT - 16/09/2013

MMT, Sweden, has been awarded an Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) search and clearance project for TenneT offshore GmbH in the German Bight. The HelWin 2 offshore cable route including the HVDC platform area will be surveyed using a magnetometer array to find any anomalies. The survey will be conducted from the MMT survey vessel Triad. This survey will be followed by an identification and removal operation/possible detonation in 2013 and at the beginning of 2014.

TenneT offshore GmbH (TOG) is responsible for the electrical connections of offshore wind parks within German territorial waters in the German Bight (North Sea) and EEZ to the German electricity distribution network.

As result of the UXO threat that was identified in the Threat and Risk Assessment for the HelWin 2 HVDC and HVAC cable route, a requirement for a geophysical survey was raised by TenneT for the offshore platform and all cable routes.
