Neart na Goaithe Boulder Relocation

Our team performed boulder clearance on the Neart na Goaithe Offshore Wind Farm using the PSV Kristiansand. 

Using the SMT-ROV, we relocated a total of more than 18,000 boulders using both Tine and Clam-shell grab tooling. Boulder size ranged from 0.2m to 2.5m, and we were able to relocate between 80 to 120 boulders in a 24hr period. The scope of work included the requirement to relocate boulders and survey the seabed simultaneously, before recording as left multibeam bathymetry and video data to confirm the areas were clear.
