Ocean Business 2011 will see Fugro professionals on the distinguished panel of conference speakers, amongst the exhibitors in the main hall and also discussing career opportunities at the associated Ocean Careers event.
Mark Calverley, Consultancy Director at Fugro GEOS, is amongst the speakers at the specialist 2-day Offshore Survey Conference which focuses on technical, operational and business issues in the global field of offshore survey. Speaking on Thursday, 7th April, his presentation is entitled “Interoperability of metocean data from global sources” and it will include illustrations of Metis, the new user friendly system from Fugro GEOS which utilises GIS technology to geographically reference data to locations. Metis allows metocean data from different sources to be viewed in a single web display. The 20-minute presentation begins at 11.15am and will be followed by a short opportunity for questions from conference delegates.
Also on 7th April, two Fugro specialists will take part in Ocean Careers 2011, the event offering advice on career opportunities within the ocean technology, marine science and offshore industries. Rob Mawdsley, Senior Oceanographer with Fugro GEOS and Duncan Allen, Survey Positioning Project Manager with Fugro Survey will each give presentations and then host speed meetings with students who sign up for the sessions.
In the main exhibition hall, stand G7 is where Fugro’s technical and commercial representatives will be based, with demonstrations of the new Metis system by Mark Calverley featured on Wednesday and Thursday. Visitors to the stand can also find out more about the newly-launched MV Fugro Galaxy (image), the most advanced survey vessel of its type in the world. Operating out of Aberdeen, UK, the Galaxy is fitted with latest survey equipment. The state-of-the-art vessel also provides plug-and-play connectivity, whilst multiple workstations enable onboard data interpretation and reporting.
The Fugro Pelagos team will also be on hand to present the benefits of the WinFrog real-time integrated navigation positioning and data acquisition software package, demonstrating its ability to meet a wide range of marine survey and underwater construction needs.
