Fugro Takes Delivery of Newbuild Survey Vessel

Dutch-based service provider Fugro has taken delivery of a newbuild offshore survey vessel Fugro Brasilis July 4 from Singapore-based Oakwell Engineering Limited's subsidiary Oakwell Shipbuilding Engineering & Construction Pte Ltd. 

The 213-foot (65-meter) long Fugro Brasilis - built at Oakwell Shipbuilding's yard in Thailand - is equipped with dynamic positioning and state-of-the-art survey equipment and can carry out a wide range of offshore services. These include geophysical mapping, bathymetric and geotechnical survey in water depths of up to 9,843 feet (3,000 meters). The vessel can also be configured to support Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) and light Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) operations.

Fugro Brasilis will be utilized on a variety of projects offshore South America, Fugro said in a company release.

This is the second survey ship that Oakwell Shipbuilding has built for Fugro after the Fugro Equator, which was delivered in 2012.
