• Careers

Operating globally, Fugro’s fleet of advanced, multipurpose jack-up barges has been engineered for complex site investigations and marine construction projects. Built on our long history of innovation you can be confident in our ability to deliver safely, efficiently and professionally.

Capabilities

Our fleet of advanced jack-up barges is ideally suited for overwater site investigations, marine construction projects and large diameter drilling works. At our extensive in-house facilities we have designed and built most of our nearshore jack-up barges. Smaller jack-up barges can be transported by road or container ships and are operational soon after arrival at your site. Our fleet also includes self-propelled jack-up barges that can be quickly moved between project locations and can be optionally equipped with welfare facilities, on board cranes, a safety boat or tender and an inclined access ladder.

Benefits

Barges and equipment are designed, built and modified in-house resulting in streamlined delivery and enhanced reliability
Modular jack-up barges can be shipped globally as standard containers, reducing freight cost
On-board accommodation and laboratory testing facilities boosts productivity and reduces the risk of crew transfers
Our integrated range of services helps to simplify project management and maximise efficiency

Aran 120

The Aran 120 is a medium sized, container transportable, modular jack-up barge. The barge has low international transport costs and high performance capabilities, perfect for geotechnical investigations, excavation and construction.

In its compact configuration, this fast elevating jack-up barge is ideal for confined intertidal areas, where accurate movement and positioning is required. 

Aran 250

Aran

The Aran 250 is a medium sized, high payload, modular jack-up barge has low international transport costs coupled with high performance capabilities.

The barge has been modified to provide more expansive use of deck space and hydraulic system enhancement to provide jacking speed 3 times faster than ‘standard’.

Coral Giant

Coral Giant

The Coral Giant jack-up barge has been especially designed to carry out marine geotechnical investigations in ports, tidal waters and exposed coastal areas.

Operating in water depths of up to 18 m, the Coral Giant can conduct a range of drilling and sampling techniques as well as cone penetration testing and other in situ geotechnical testing.

Curlew

The Curlew jack-up barge has been especially designed to carry out marine geotechnical investigations in ports, tidal waters and sheltered coastal areas.

Operating in water depths between 1-12 m, the Curlew can conduct a range of drilling and sampling techniques as well as cone penetration testing and other in-situ geotechnical testing.

Excalibur

Excalibur II

Excalibur is our largest jack-up barge and is capable of working in water depths up to 40 m. Excalibur has been used extensively for installing foundations and large-scale site investigations for offshore wind farm projects; it also can be equipped with an integral foundation drilling unit.

On-board accommodation for 40 people reduces the need for time consuming and potentially high-risk crew transfers.

Fugro 1200

Fugro 1200

Fast jacking speed, and large deck space make the Fugro 1200 well suited to support foundation piling, large-scale geotechnical investigations and general heavy lift marine construction operations.

The Fugro 1200 can be mobilised to conduct jetty pile and superstructure installation and can be easily deployed with onboard accommodation if required.
