WALNEY 1 & 2 OFFSHORE WIND FARMS
A Bathymetric Survey that will cover all 102 Turbine positions, all of the Infield or Inter-Array Cables as well as the two Sub-Stations is scheduled for the WALNEY 1 & 2 OFFSHORE WIND FARMS.
The survey can be expected to start on or around Thursday 11th May and will be carried out by the Bibby Hydromap’s 15 meter survey catamaran ‘LIA’ as soon as this vessel completes and then demobilises from the ORMONDE EXPORT CABLE SURVEY.
‘LIA’ will operate on a 12 hr daylight only schedule and start date and length of survey is dependent on weather and conditions but the survey can be expected to run for approx. 7 to 9 days
All mariners should please note that as ‘LIA’ will be using highly sensitive Multi Beam Echo Sounding Equipment a wide berth, minimum 500 meters, is requested around the vessel at all times and passing vessels are requested to reduce speed if possible.
Attached for information is a small chartlet which shows the Wind Farm Layout with the Turbine positions as black dots, the Infield (or Inter-Array) Cables as red lines and the two Sub-Stations red triangles, there is also a picture of ‘LIA’
Also attached is the ‘Kingfisher Flyer’ which gives all of the relevant information concerning WALNEY 1 & 2 (WALNEY 1 is shaded blue – WALNEY 2 is shaded red).
Please note that the ‘Flyers’ are for provided for information purposes relating to the Wind Farm only and should not be used for navigation.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any further information.
