Dataset identification

Title of dataset2011, Fugro Geoconsulting Ltd., Zone 9 Celtic Array, Geotechnical Survey
Narrative summary of datasetAt the request of Centrica Energy Renewable Investments Limited (CERIL), Fugro Geoconsulting Limited acted as the main contractor for a geotechnical site investigation at the Irish Sea Round 3 Wind Farm (Zone 9) site. The fieldwork was performed using the Fugro Saltire from 05 March to 24 March 2011. A total of nine boreholes were performed at the Irish Sea Round 3 Wind Farm (Zone 9) site. Four locations were investigated comprising a continuous in-situ testing and sampling program. The purpose of the investigation was to provide soils information and to assess the ground conditions. This data will assist in design of met masts for the proposed wind farm. This dataset includes borehole geotechnical log information and the cone penetration test (CPT) data for all of the CPT sites during the geotechnical survey together with supporting documentation. Video data was also collected but is not included in this dataset.
