Survey contractor Ocean Infinity conducted the offshore survey using the Northern Franklin vessel. The geophysical survey and environmental survey activities commenced on August 7 and were completed on September 21.
Salamander, a joint venture between Simply Blue Group, Ørsted and Subsea7, will help to ensure the UK government’s target of delivering 5GW of operational floating offshore wind by 2030.
The pioneering project, located 35km off Peterhead, is designed to provide the Scottish supply chain with an early capacity development opportunity, enabling it to play a much greater role in subsequent large-scale floating offshore wind buildout. The project will deploy innovative and cutting-edge floating offshore wind technologies, to support the cost reduction and learning journey needed for the commercial deployment of floating offshore wind.
