EGS has completed a major offshore geophysical and hydrographic survey for Ørsted’s Skipjack Wind offshore wind project off the coast of Maryland’s Delmarva Peninsula. Ørsted is the U.S. leader in offshore wind, with approximately 5 gigawatts in development. The survey lasted over a year and involved deploying a wide range of hydrographic and high-resolution geophysical survey instruments from multiple survey vessels throughout New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland in challenging and remote environments.

EGS was contracted by Ørsted to conduct, process, and interpret high-resolution geophysical and hydrographic survey data of the nearshore sections of the export cable routes for Skipjack Wind, currently in development. The offshore wind farm is located off the coast of Maryland and Delaware.

Over 2,500 km of survey lines were acquired combining nearly 50,000 total man-hours by multiple survey vessels including MV Time and Tide during survey operations. Offshore operations included shallow water high-resolution geophysical and hydrographic surveys.

EGS Vice President and Senior Project Manager Chris Dougherty worked closely with the Ørsted Site Investigations team in the time leading up to the commencement of field operations and throughout the duration of the project so that the team of 5 offshore geophysicists, surveyors, engineers, and protected species observers could be as well-prepared and safe as possible for the variety of survey tasks to be performed throughout the survey.

EGS is a leading international group of companies that provides global specialist multi-disciplinary marine survey services and delivers solutions to the Oil and Gas, Telecommunications, and Energy & Renewables market sectors.
