The Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) consultancy firm NjordIC BV has been awarded a contract by Energie Baden-Württemberg AG (EnBW) to provide Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) services for the
He Dreiht offshore wind farm project. The contract will commence Q4 2022 until completion Q4 2023.

NjordIC will provide EnBW with EOD expertise and UXO consultancy during the upcoming UXO survey, identification, and clearance campaign. NjordIC will also be responsible for the processing and evaluation of the magnetometer data, as well as the delivery of the final UXO ALARP certification. All services will be provided according to the German Explosive Law.

In 2022 NjordIC provided EnBW with a UXO desktop study and risk assessment for the He Dreiht project and supporting EnBW in the UXO survey, ID & C tender phase by delivering the technical input for the tender documentation.

"Once again we are delighted to be included in the EnBW project team to execute an efficient UXO risk mitigation scheme to ensure a safe working environment," said Erik Wildeman, UXO Consultant for NjordIC. "We thank EnBW for their confidence in our services."

He Dreiht is being developed as a subsidy-free wind farm, and was awarded grid connection agreement in the German capacity auction held in April 2017. The 900 MW project is located approximately 85 km north of the Borkum Island and 95 km to the west of the Helgoland Island. Its operation and maintenance will be conducted from EnBW's base in Emden. Full commissioning of the wind farm is expected in the second half of 2025. It will feature 64 wind turbines, each with a 15 MW capacity.
