Next Geosolutions’ 17-month marine survey project for cable route design and engineering in the western Baltic Sea, has been supported by RMS Submarine.
The project consists of multiple 220 kV AC grid connections of the two offshore wind parks Arkona Basin South-East and Wikinger.
Next Geosolutions’ workscope for its client Prysmian has included nearshore and offshore multibeam, geophysical (SSS, SBP, mag), UXO (using the Katria Scanfish solution with 4 mag array), geotechnical (VC and PCPT) and ROV inspection operations , as well as beach landing topographic surveys.
During 2015, RMS provided consultancy (including technical solutions during tendering phase), ongoing technical support as required, stand in project management, various equipment and key asset resourcing including onshore office support and facilities, via its German contacts and relations.
RMS resourced the multiple nearshore and offshore vessel solutions along with integrated survey equipment, inspection ROV and CPT geotech equipment/consumables.
RMS provided personnel throughout the six month phase of the project in 2015. These included office-based project manager and data processors, offshore party chiefs, surveyors, data processors, CAD operatives, survey and underwater engineers, geophysicists, geotechnical operators and engineers, ROV supervisors and pilot technicians.
During 2016’s 11 month campaign, RMS has continued to support with technical aspects as required, key asset sourcing and the supply of offshore personnel.
RMS assisted in resourcing the main offshore vessel, coupled with the project management assistance for the necessary upgrades, modification and fabrication together with associated project specific consumables during the vessel mobilisation in the UK.
In addition to the mobilisation management assistance, RMS provided multiple offshore personnel inclusive of, but not limited to the above range offered in 2015, with the addition of UXO geophysicists and UXO processors.
