Bibby HydroMap were commissioned by Innogy Renewables UK Ltd to carry out a depth of burial survey along each of the inter-array cables on the Galloper Offshore Wind Farm.
The objectives of the survey along each inter-array cable were to:
- Determine the depth of burial
- Assess the level of scour protection
- Identify any areas of exposure or free span
- Investigate the surrounding seabed to track changes to the environment
The survey was carried out from Bibby HydroMap’s specialist survey vessel Bibby Athena, equipped with their survey ROV d’ROP and Pangeo Subsea’s Sub-Bottom Imager (SBI). In addition to the depth of burial equipment, a dual-head Norbit WBMS multibeam echosounder was also mobilised simultaneously on d’ROP.
