Fugro has taken delivery of the Fugro Americas, a new-build shallow draft survey vessel.

According to Fugro, the vessel is fitted with the latest geophysical survey equipment and houses some of the most advanced instrumentation in the field.

fugroThe Fugro Americas is optimised for working in the Gulf of Mexico, but it is also suitable for other geographical areas, being permanently mobilised and available for rapid deployment to locations throughout North and South America as well as the Caribbean.

The 59 metre long vessel is capable of carrying out a wide range of offshore services including high resolution geophysical and light geotechnical surveys in water depths of up to 4,500 metres.

Fugro Americas is built to operate Fugro’s new 4,500 metre-rated Hugin 1000 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), Echo Surveyor VII, which was delivered in December 2014. Specialist equipment on the new survey vessel includes a dynamic positioning system and survey systems, including a deep water EM302 multibeam echosounder to be used for gas seep surveys.

The Fugro Americas was built by Thoma-Sea Marine Constructors in Louisiana, with supervision by Fugro Marine Services.
