Damen Delivers OCSV ‘Fugro Frontier’

Three months after its last delivery, Fugro has received the third of a series of three Fugro Offshore Coastal Survey Vessels (FOCSV) being built by Damen, on December 12th 2014.

Like its sister vessels, Fugro Frontier is a compact, diesel-electric FOCSV designed for a variety of tasks. However, Fugro Frontier has benefited from tailoring to the conditions she will meet in its chosen market off the coast of Africa.

All three are capable of taking on geotechnical work, environmental baseline surveys, moon pool deployment plus monitoring and inspection duties.

“However since these vessels are to work in different areas, each is adapted to suit a particular environment. As a result, this series has been developed specifically to allow for a number of optional configurations,” says Mijndert Wiesenekker, Sales Director for Damen’s Benelux region.

Therefore the Fugro Frontier, which is aiming to work across a number of various African markets, has a slightly different deck layout to its sisters including a small daughter craft. This will be utilised as a survey vessel where areas of shallow water would prevent a larger craft from entering.

Although Fugro Frontier is the third vessel to have been recently built directly by Damen for Fugro, a further vessel for Fugro is also presently under construction in Brazil.
