Fugro Survey Near Krenitzin Islands - 15/05/2012


Fugro has been awarded a task order under its five-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to survey around the Aleutian chain’s Krenitzin Islands, Alaska in summer 2012.

The survey, which will utilise multibeam echo sounder-based bathymetric data collection from a mothership and survey launches, is in support of NOAA’s National Ocean Service (NOS) Office of Coast Survey (OCS) to update nautical charts around Akun and Tigalda Islands. Since 2006, Fugro has successfully completed 24 task orders for NOAA. While the data collection phase of the project is expected to be completed by August 2012, data processing and product creation is expected to run through the remainder of 2012.
