Floating Energy Allyance (FEA) has appointed Ocean Infinity to carry out an initial geophysical and geotechnical site investigation at its Buchan Offshore Wind project, 75km to the northeast of Fraserburgh.
This represents an important step in the design and assessment process of the project, with the survey campaign taking place later this year.

“At Ocean Infinity, we are committed to contributing to a more sustainable future and as such, are delighted to have been chosen by Floating Energy Allyance to support on the Buchan Offshore Wind project. We’re very proud that our advanced survey and seabed data acquisition technologies will play a significant role in the design and assessment process of this pioneering energy infrastructure; providing the data needed to ensure an environmentally conscious, successful development.”
