Investigative works and survey update – October 2019

Beginning in 2017, the Bradwell B project team have been carrying out a series of surveys and investigative works with the aim of building our understanding of the area and to develop our proposals. As you may have noticed, there is continuing activity both on and offshore as we continue these works.

Over the past two weeks, intertidal temperature sensors have been deployed and seabed wave and current meters have been planted. These seabed instruments are not visible above water, however guard buoys have been placed nearby to mark their positions.

These sensors will provide us with a greater understanding of the way in which currents move along the seabed, as well as to measure waves and tidal levels. All of this information will improve our knowledge of the Blackwater Estuary.

The results of our surveys will help inform the impact assessment and design of the proposed power station. Once we have sufficient information, we will consult with the local community on our initial proposals.

If you have any questions or require further information, please contact a member of the project team using the details below:
