NORTH WIND: Marine geotechnical and civil contractor Seacore recently completed initial investigations in the North Sea for the UK's first proposed offshore windfarm near Blyth in Northumberland. Working in joint venture with Fugro for client Border Wind, Seacore sunk two 20m boreholes working from the jack-up barge Coastal Explorer. Marine investigation work will enable engineers to develop an outline design for the rock-socketed monopile foundations for the windfarm's proposed five 500kW turbines.
