The DP1 Ice Class Survey and ROV vessel is working out of Vlissingen, the Netherlands, supporting Deep BV with conducting monitoring surveys of the seabed preparation work.

According to SeaZip, the seabed is mapped with the hull mounted R2Sonic multibeam and sent to the dredging vessels during operation.

The trench of the export cable needs to be surveyed during the dredging works prior to the cable installation operation later this year, the Dutch company said.

The 752MW Borssele 1 & 2 project will feature 94 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines located 23km from the coast of Zeeland.
