Fugro wins highway data collection contract for the state of Alaska

Under this new contract, Fugro will also implement a suite of roadway data applications that will feed into the Department’s existing business systems to foster informed decision-making and support state and federally mandated transportation programmes, such as the Highway Performance Monitoring System. Work on the contract is slated to begin this month. Fugro is currently mobilising one of its Automatic Road Analyzer (ARAN) data collection vehicles to Anchorage for a Phase-I pilot programme. The ARAN will be used to collect geo-referenced pavement condition data, including pavement profiles, 3D images of the pavement surface and right-of-way (ROW) images. After acceptance of the pilot programme, Phase-II will commence in 2018 and continue through 2021, covering various regions of the state. “We are thrilled to bring Fugro’s roadway mapping capabilities to Alaska,” stated Rada Khadjinova, Fugro’s Alaska General Manager. “While Fugro has extensive experience in highway data collection projects in the Lower 48 and Canada, this will be our first time providing these services in Alaska. We look forward to working with ADOT&PF and helping them meet their stated mission to keep Alaska moving through service and infrastructure.” The ADOT&PF contract award follows several recent highway data collection wins for Fugro in the Americas. The company’s continuous presence in Alaska and decades-long track record performing geospatial, marine survey and geotechnical services in the state contributed to the successful proposal...

Port Client Royal IHC Reveal Blyth Built J-Lay System

Is it a new theme park ride or the set for the next Transformer movie? The truth isn’t quite so fanciful but it is equally impressive. Initially shrouded in secrecy, as is often the way in the offshore sector, Northumberland based engineering firm Royal IHC Limited, a major Port of Blyth client and the UK arm of Dutch parent company Royal IHC, has released some details on the soon to be completed 2000 tonne offshore oil and gas pipe laying system....

Brent Delta Supplies Benefit Charities

Posted on the : 20th September 2017 Charities in the region have benefitted as a result of donations from an unusual source—a redundant oil platform. As Able UK begins the complex project to dismantle and recycle the Brent Delta platform at its Able Seaton Port facility, a range of supplies, including food and bedding, have been removed from the structure and donated to charitable organisations. Amongst those to benefit was Hartlepool Foodbank which received around one and half tonnes of stock recovered from the Brent Delta. Meanwhile other items including bedding, mattresses, towels, fridges and cutlery have been donated to (NEH) North East Homeless – an organisation which works in the region to provide accommodation for vulnerable people, including the homeless – and to Old Park Farm Kennels as part of the Save our Strays (SOS) initiative. Says Neil Jarvis, Able’s Shell Brent Project Director “The Brent Delta was home to hundreds of workers for over 40 years and when it arrived into Able Seaton Port in May it included all the kinds of items to support the accommodation of the workforce. “Now that we have begun the decommissioning process the day-to-day items have to be removed before we can work on the major dismantling operations and we are delighted that they can be put to good work through local organisations.” The 24,200-tonne Brent Delta was transported from the...

QUEENSFERRY CROSSING TO BE OPENED BY THE QUEEN

The Queensferry Crossing will be officially opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Monday September 4. This follows a ‘soft’ opening to traffic which took place earlier this week. The events will mark the completion of a momentous journey which has involved 15,000 people and over 18 million hours of work. Among the vast array of contractors working on the £1.35 billion project, were a dedicated team from Ainscough Crane Hire which was involved in the project from its very earliest stages. For five years, Ainscough staff, principally from the Falkirk Depot, have provided lifting services to the main contractor, Forth Road Bridge Contractors (FCBC) on the Transport Scotland project. To mark the opening, 50,000 people will walk across the 1.7 mile long bridge prior to its permanent traffic opening on Thursday September 7. Ciaran McNamee, Ainscough’s Depot Manager at Falkirk said: “Now it is complete, we can all reflect on the enormity of the project and the remarkable addition the bridge makes to the skyline. “It is an understatement to say that we are proud to have played a part in its construction. Scotland is world-famous for its engineering ingenuity and as this bridge demonstrates, we still have the skills, vision and capability here to achieve great things.” The post QUEENSFERRY CROSSING TO BE OPENED BY THE QUEEN appeared first on Ainscough Wind Energy...
