We have also recently invested in a series of dedicated coastal survey vessels (the FOSCV 53 range), suited for offshore wind energy projects, offshore cable and pipeline corridor design and nautical hydrographic charting programmes. Fitted with the latest survey equipment, these new vessels are the most advanced of their type.
They are capable of carrying out the full range of site and route survey tasks to obtain the high resolution data necessary for safe, efficient and cost-effective planning, design and engineering activities. The FOSCV 53 range is specifically designed for the installation of wind turbines, as well as pipelines, platforms, manifolds and other seabed structures.
With a full range of cranes and winches as well as moon pools, our vessels benefit from dynamic positioning and even include facilities for light geotechnical investigations (vibrocores and cone penetration testing).
Our survey vessels are Installed with the latest specialist systems for high-resolution multibeam surveys and complimentary geotechnical and investigation services. They are fitted with:
- Multibeam echosounders
- Sub-bottom profilers
- Acoustic positioning system
- Other acoustic/sonar systems deployed in and around the custom-built box-keel
- Fugro proprietary satellite positioning systems
- Sources for precise motion, heading and positioning data
- VSAT for worldwide transfer of all acquired data processed on-board
Our new coastal survey vessels include:
