The Proeftuin op de Noordzee (North Sea test site) is an area of 10 by 10 nautical miles off the coast of Scheveningen/The Hague, the Netherlands, intended for testing innovative products.
Together with TNO and Boskalis we are going to do a number of surveys in this area to support operations with undersea cables for offshore wind parks.
Scheveningen is a popular bathing resort. Unfortunately some tourists drown here every year and it is often difficult to find the victims. We are going to do a project with the Dutch Coastguard and the local authority to develop better methods to find bodies underwater by imaging the seabed with the multibeam sounder.
