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

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.
