Planned Activity

 

A geophysical and environmental survey of the proposed Erebus Floating Offshore Wind Farm (FLOW) project remains ongoing. The survey involves the use of Multibeam Echosounder (MBES), Sidescan Sonar (SSS), Sub-Bottom profiler (SBP) and Magnetometer equipment, some of which is being towed sub-surface astern of the vessels.

The survey is covering the main offshore array areas, plus 1km buffer and the proposed export cable corridor (450m width). Closer to shore, the survey corridor splits to cover four potential landfalls. The extent of the planned survey is shown in the attached figure. Coordinates of the offshore array (and buffer) and export cable survey corridor are also provided below.
