UXO surveys for floating offshore wind: a short guide
RPS’ UXO Marine team work with clients to assess the risks from UXO (Unexploded Ordnance) to their project sites prior to construction. For offshore wind development, they generally support wind farm developers, cable installation contractors and transmission system operators.
The infographics on this page look into some of the key UXO assessment considerations for the floating offshore wind sector as it grows and develops. Take a look to learn more.

First, a UXO process explainer
What steps take place during marine UXO assessment? The following are carried out to identify the nature of potential risk to the project site.
What UXO assessment challenges should floating wind projects consider?
In this section, we’re exploring the differences between UXO for fixed foundation and for floating offshore wind. In terms of the offshore environment, floating offshore wind development generally starts at a depth of around 60m, but it will also include cables to shore and onshore elements.
