Danish consulting firm COWI has awarded Fugro a nearshore geotechnical site investigation for CPH City & Port Development’s Lynetteholmen megaproject in Copenhagen.

Fugro’s site investigation will be used to inform the detailed design of the new artificial island, which will cover approximately 275 hectares and increase the Danish capital’s land mass by around 2%.

Fugro’s solution will acquire high-quality geotechnical data in shallow water depths from a single jack-up, and ensure fast and efficient data delivery via Fugro’s newly developed Gaia solution.

The company began work in September this year with the successful mobilization of the Skate 3 modular jack-up; the fieldwork is expected to complete in March 2020.

According to Fugro, the new island will provide housing for 35,000 people and protect against storm-water impact and sea-level rise, contributing to a safe and liveable environment for the residents of Copenhagen and beyond.
