FS007358 Statkraft North Irish Sea Array (NISA) Site Investigations for Export Cable Route

 

Statkraft Ireland Ltd. has applied to the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage for a Foreshore Licence for site investigation surveys.

The surveys are necessary to establish the optimum location for and design of the export cable(s) to shore, and to establish the most appropriate route corridor and landfall location for the export cable(s) from the proposed North Irish Sea Array (NISA) offshore wind farm, located off the coasts of Dublin, Meath and Louth.

The application includes for geophysical surveys (mutli-beam echo sounder, sub bottom profiling, side-scan sonar and magnetometer), geotechnical surveys (cone penetration tests and vibrocores along the potential routes and boreholes at the landfalls) and ecological surveys (fisheries surveys, benthic grab samples, intertidal benthic sampling).
