Fugro to Conduct Hydrographic Surveys in Papua New Guinea

Fugro has been awarded a total of six contracts by the National Maritime Safety Authority (NMSA) to provide hydrographic surveys in Papua New Guinea .

The surveys will be conducted utilizing a combination of Fugro’s airborne LiDAR bathymetry (ALB) and multibeam echo sounder (MBES) sensors.

In deeper waters the surveys will be performed by a vessel and Fugro will also conduct a comprehensive tides campaign throughout the survey area.

The contracts are part of the Asian Development Bank-funded Maritime Waterways Safety Project that aims to improve the safety and efficiency of the country’s international and national shipping in coastal areas and waterways.

The project is expected to contribute to capacity development in the country, which has over 5,000 kilometers of coastline.
