Fugro boosts offshore wind projects in Taiwan

Complementing its 30 years of experience offshore Taiwan, Fugro has completed geotechnical and geophysical surveys for feasibility studies, installation, commissioning and cost-effective operation of offshore wind farms in UK, European and North American waters. In 2016 it undertook the first geotechnical and geophysical survey and metocean study project in Taiwanese waters for a major offshore wind developer for engineering design and environmental impact assessment purposes. Amongst Fugro’s successful projects in the region’s oil and gas sector is a large-scale clearance survey for an exploration 3D seismic survey programme. The survey was conducted with International Ocean Vessel Technical Consultant Co Ltd (IOVTEC), with whom the company has recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU). Optimising their service offerings in marine site characterisation under this MoU, Fugro and IOVTEC will also install a lidar buoy to collect wind resource data off the Taiwanese coast in January 2018. In addition to its surveying activity, IOVTEC will provide logistic and operational support to Fugro’s offshore metocean projects. The agreement will see the two companies cooperate on marine survey projects in the waters surrounding Taiwan, with IOVTEC expanding survey services in the country and Fugro providing fit-for-purpose technology, equipment and expertise. “IOVTEC brings to the MoU its specialist skills in domestic hydrographic and bathymetric surveys for coastal mapping, government port and harbour agencies, dredging and marine contractors and offshore wind farm developers in Taiwan,”...

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...
