Fugro Takes Delivery of Survey Vessel

Fugro took delivery of a new-build survey vessel, the M/V Fugro Searcher which it commissioned in 2007. Fugro took the opportunity to look at all aspects of overall survey vessel design in detail and install the latest equipment, making it the most advanced vessel of its type in the world.

The vessel will operate in the offshore oil and gas industry and the offshore renewable energy sector. It will be able to carry out the full range of site and route survey tasks to obtain the high resolution data necessary for safe, efficient and cost-effective planning, design and engineering activities involving the seabed and the installation of pipelines, platforms, wind turbines, subsea structures and other seabed furniture.

The new vessel will have permanently mobilized geophysical and hydrographic survey spreads. Geotechnical equipment will be installed on a project by project basis. The Furgo Searcher represents initial steps in a global vessel replacement schedule with the objective of removing older tonnage from the fleet and clearly differentiating Fugro's Offshore Survey Division from other providers.
