Deep-sea geotechnical surveys across Morecambe site.
A deep-sea geotechnical survey is due to be undertaken at the Morecambe Offshore Windfarm project site starting in mid-July.
The survey vessel will collect seabed data from different locations inside the project area within which the proposed array will be located.
This survey activity is due to be completed by the end of October 2023 and are subject to weather conditions (dates may change at short notice). An Offshore Fisheries Liaison Officer will be onboard managing sampling locations across the development site. A clearance zone of 500m around each sampling location is being requested, however in order to minimise disruption to fishers, any fishing gear will be worked around, meaning clearance of the site is not requested.

The findings from the deep-sea geotechnical survey will, alongside other survey result sets, play an active role in influencing the end design of the Morecambe Offshore Windfarm.
