Survey And Positioning Contract for Utec Survey

UTEC Survey Asia (Singapore) has received a contract award from Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering (MMHE) to supply survey and positioning services in Turkmenistan. UTEC Survey will support the MMHE-Technip JV installation of a 7,000mT Gravity Based Structure (GBS) and topside floatover. The work is scheduled to take place in fourth quarter 2010. In addition to providing positioning services for the structures, UTEC will deploy precise motion and environmental sensors in order to provide real-time monitoring during the installation.

Survey Suite for New German Survey Vessel

Kongsberg Maritime, Norway, has been awarded the contract to supply a survey suite to a vessel currently under construction and for use by a consortium of German universities. The universities are the first to specify the 0.5º x 1º configuration of the EM122 multibeam echo sounder system.       The contract, an open tender won amongst tough competition, covers all hydro-acoustic aspects of the new-build survey vessel ‘Tiefsee Forschungs Schiff’ (TFS), which has been commissioned to replace the old RV Sonne, the current vessel being shared by the same group of German universities. The EM122 is a field-proven and... (read more)

Fugro Survey Expands Geohazard Survey Vessel Fleet

Fugro will acquire the vessel KV Tromsø from Kystvaktskipet Tromsø of Norway. This vessel will be converted initially for acoustic pipeline inspection survey operations and will be ready for deployment in May 2007. It was built in 1997 and is currently serving as a Norwegian Coastguard vessel. This acquisition is part of Fugro’s ongoing policy to partly replace, modernise and expand its fleet of seabed survey vessels. KV Tromsø will be renamed and will be operated by Fugro Survey Ltd of Aberdeen, increasing the UK/Norwegian operated geohazard survey vessel fleet to five units. The vessel will be equipped to a...

Under-ice Lake Survey

A British engineering team is heading off to Antarctica for the first stage of a scientific mission to collect water and sediment samples from a lake buried beneath three kilometres of solid ice. Transporting nearly 70 tonnes of equipment, the ‘advance party’ will journey almost 16,000km from the UK to subglacial Lake Ellsworth on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS). It is one of the most remote and hostile environments on Earth, with temperatures of –25°C.   Their task is to prepare the way for the ‘deep-field' research mission that will take place one year later. In October 2012, a... (read more)

Shallow Hazards Survey Completed

Fugro GeoServices has successfully completed the fieldwork portion of a shallow hazards survey in Alaska’s Chukchi Sea for Shell Exploration and Production. Data processing is currently underway, with the first set of interpretation and reporting deliverables scheduled for month’s end. Additional follow-on work is expected to continue into the new year. Fugro accomplished the surveys over a period of two months. Acquisition involved specialized equipment customized for the arctic environment and to meet Alaska outer continental shelf permitting requirements, as published by the federal Minerals Management Service agency.     (read more)

Internet Based Survey Services

Fugro announces a major step forward with the launch of their Remote Services based on FANS technology. FANS, short for Fugro's Advanced Navigation System, enables remote connections to offshore survey systems - either from the office or from other vessels in the offshore working area - and facilitates a new series of services, ranging from Remote Monitoring to Stand Alone Navigation with remote support and Remote QC.   Amongst other benefits, the new services result in reduced costs and HSE exposure, improved QC capabilities and greater flexibility in personnel resource planning and allocation.   Fugro's Remote Services have allready proven...

Full Pipeline Survey Spread

For the first time, a full pipeline survey spread has been fitted to a Saab Seaeye ROV in the shape of the Panther XT Plus. The innovation is to bring considerable savings in survey operating costs to operators when compared to deploying a 150hp hydraulic work-class vehicle for the task. Being acoustically quieter than a hydraulic vehicle, an electric ROV will also produce more accurate multi-beam sonar data. Making this possible is the power of the Panther XT Plus. This ROV offers a powerful platform for a wide variety of tooling that expands the scope of work tasks possible in... (read more)
