MMT was recently awarded a contract for geophysical export cable route surveys for the Seagreen offshore wind farm in Scotland.

The export cable route is approximately 100 km in length and will run from the proposed wind farm to a landfall location at the former Cockenzie Power Station, east of Edinburgh. MMT's team aboard the offshore survey vessel Franklin has commenced the geophysical survey operations earlier this week and will later be adjoined by a shallow draft vessel to perform the nearshore and intertidal parts of the survey.

MMT's work follows a full geophysical and 2D UHRS site survey of the proposed project areas in the summer of 2018.

The
Seagreen offshore wind farm is a 1,075 MW project, located 27 km off the Angus Coast in the Firth of Forth. It will be developed and operated by Seagreen Wind Energy Limited. Once constructed, the wind farm will be the largest in Scotland and Phase One is expected to provide low carbon energy for around one million homes.

In September 2019, Seagreen secured a 15-year CfD contract awarded by the UK government. SSE Renewables is leading on the development and construction of the first 1,140 MW phase, supported by Total, and will operate the asset on completion, which is expected in 2022/23. The project will feature 114 MHI Vestas
V164-10 MW turbines.
