Partrac has been selected by Statoil to provide real-time wave and current measurement services for the Dudgeon offshore wind farm.
Partrac has been contracted to manage the deployment and maintenance of the equipment and the delivery of real-time waves and current data over the duration of the construction phase of the development.
The company chose a Triaxys wave buoy for the project.
Sam Athey, Director at Partrac, said, “We are very pleased to be delivering metocean services to Statoil and the Dudgeon offshore wind farm. This project award is testament to our commitment to providing safe and cost-effective metocean services to the offshore industries.”
The 402 MW Dudgeon offshore wind farm is located some 20 miles off the coast of the seaside town of Cromer in North Norfolk. Statoil is developing the wind farm and will continue as its operator when it starts generating electricity in early 2017.
