Fugro Venturer to Embark on Maiden Voyage

Fugro’s geophysical & hydrographic survey newbuild, the Fugro Venturer, is set to make its maiden voyage to the deep waters of Ireland’s Atlantic margin and the far North of the Barents Sea.

Venturer is the newest of Fugro’s successful purpose-designed, standardised survey vessels, originally formulated in 2013.

The 72-metre vessel is a platform for technological innovation, where Fugro’s technologies such as OARS (centralised command centres with direct access to offshore survey projects), Back2Base (enabling survey data to be sent from offshore vessels to onshore processing centres and clients) and ROAMES (an asset management solution streamlining subsea operations) are changing information delivery.

Fugro has secured a work backlog so that a campaign of site and pipeline route surveys, for clients including Aker BP, following commissioning and survey trials. Fugro Venturer is contracted to conduct simultaneous analogue/digital surveys, 3D high resolution seismic and environmental sampling and shallow geotechnical operations.

Specialised equipment enables sampling in water depths of up to 3,500 metres and a permanent AUV hangar houses a Kongsberg Hugin 1000 autonomous underwater vehicle. The vessel can also host a multitude of ROV platforms.

Phil Meaden, regional director Fugro Europe Marine, explains: “The Fugro Venturer provides an exceptional range of survey solutions. She will be equally at home in the offshore wind farms of Europe, where Fugro is pioneering innovative UXO and UHR3D seismic surveys and in oilfield inspections, where our latest solutions include fast ROV and fully autonomous inspections.”
