Fugro Americas on Display in Galveston

Making its debut at the Martin Midstream Dock in Galveston, Texas, USA, Fugro’s premier geophysical survey vessel, the Fugro Americas, was showcased to over 100 guests.

In a two-day event, Fugro gave guided tours of the new build vessel, with geophysical, geoscience, survey and HSE professionals on hand to demonstrate its equipment and features along with the working parts of a geophysical survey.

Visitors were able to view the ships’ survey instrumentation, including Fugro’s 3,000-metre-rated AUV, from a first-hand perspective.

fugro-americas-000The Fugro Americas departed the construction shipyard in Louisiana on April 13 and was immediately mobilised to the Caribbean for a successful geochemical coring campaign. Measuring 58.8 meters in length, the multi-purpose vessel is suited for geophysical surveys and seafloor mapping and is permanently mobilised for deployment to locations throughout North and South America.

In addition, Fugro owns and operates three Hugin AUV systems, two depth rated to 3,000 metres and one to 4,500 metres, all of which are portable and able to be mobilised onto the Fugro Americas or other vessels of opportunity.
