Geophysical and UXO survey

Rampion Offshore Wind Farm

The main objectives of the geophysical survey were as follows:

  • To provide an accurate bathymetric chart of the site extension;
  • To chart natural seabed features and any obstructions, manmade objects, debris or wrecks;
  • To produce isopachyte charts to show sediment thickness of the upper, loose, and any mobile material, and of any other significant reflector levels which might impact on the engineering design
  • Locate and identify sites of near surface soft materials pertinent to jack up operations;
  • To provide a detailed geological interpretation to show facies variations and structural feature changes via appropriate maps and sections;
  • To correlate magnetic anomalies and sonar contacts to identify items that may require further physical surveying
