Surveying work in the River Deben begins for wind farm
A structure which appeared in the River Deben between Felixstowe and Ramsholt this week is helping contractors behind a Suffolk off-shore wind farm survey the surrounding area.
It will allow ScottishPower Renewables’, behind the East Anglia ONE wind farm, to survey the riverbeds where cables for the scheme will be laid.
Charlie Jordan, ScottishPower Renewables’ East Anglia ONE project director, said: “We have very recently started a programme of near shore survey work for the East Anglia
ONE offshore windfarm cable route.
“Just this week a jack-up vessel has been moved to the River Deben and a temporary floating platform has been installed at Martlesham
