Fugro Bags Hydrographic Survey Gig from NOAA

Fugro is one of eight firms recently awarded a five-year hydrographic survey contract by the United States’ National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Task orders under this indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract will support development of updated navigational charts in U.S. waters, including Alaska, Hawaii, the Territories and the Great Lakes. With a maximum value of USD 250 million the contracts call for both vessel- and aircraft-based hydrographic survey capabilities.

“We are honored to continue working with NOAA on its hydrographic charting program,” said David Millar, president of Fugro Pelagos. “It is a tremendous responsibility to keep the nation’s charts updated given the dynamic nature of our coasts. We take our role in this effort very seriously, dedicating the best possible technology and experienced staff to the task to ensure efficient and accurate results.”

Fugro has been providing hydrographic survey services to NOAA since 1998. Among other task orders, working under the prior IDIQ contract, the company surveyed approximately 3,000 square kilometers around the Krenitzin Islands in Alaska to update nautical charts containing data from the early 1900s. This set of task orders was considered highly challenging due to the remote location and complex tidal regime, which involves currents of up to 10 knots.
