Lithuania: seabed suitable for offshore wind farm
A survey of an area in Lithuania has shown that the seabed there is suitable for the country’s first offshore wind farm.
Geobaltic and Garant Diving are conducting geophysical and geotechnical investigations of the seabed.
The companies operating under a joint contract surveyed an area of almost 137.5 square kilometers.
They delivered the initial results of the area, stating that the place the Lithuanian Government designated for the country’s first offshore wind farm has shown that the seabed there is suitable for developing this type of project.
The 137.5-square-kilometer site in the Baltic Sea is 29 kilometers off the country’s coast, with a water depth of around 35 meters. The preliminary site investigation report provides possibilities for deep and shallow boreholes and static probing locations.
A tender is expected to select the developer of the Baltic Sea wind power park. It is planned to be announced in September of next year.
The seabed research at the designated offshore wind area will continue to provide the participants of the future tender with data about the structure of the seabed. The data collected is expected to be processed by the end of July 2023.
