Geoquip Marine, a specialist in acquiring, analysing, and reporting global offshore geotechnical data, is getting to work on gathering crucial engineering data to support the proposed MarramWind floating offshore wind farm.

MarramWind is a joint venture between ScottishPower and Shell. The partners have chosen Geoquip Marine as their valued marine data specialist for site exploration and geotechnical data collection,
which will help inform the project development and design activities.

This model is essential for feasibility studies, including the design and installation assessments of various necessary components, such as anchors for the floating platforms, fixed foundations for the offshore substation, and inter-array cable systems.

The MarramWind survey work is being undertaken by Geoquip’s Seehorn vessel
and will continue into 2024 when down-hole work using one of Geoquip Marine’s Integrated Geotechnical Survey vessels (IGSV) will take place.

Richard Eakin, Project Director for MarramWind, said: “Floating wind will be a global gamechanger for the offshore renewables
industry and we’re really excited that MarramWind could be one of the first commercial-scale floating offshore wind farms in the world.

Richard Turner, CEO of Geoquip Marine, added: “Geoquip Marine is thrilled to be working with world-leading energy developers on the large-scale floating offshore wind project MarramWind.’’
