Foundations and geotechnical services

Our geotechnical vessels can operate independently in remote regions around the world and are able to deploy the full suite of Fugro speciality in-situ testing and sampling equipment. Most of our vessels allow integrated investigation methods, including seabed and downhole in-situ testing and sampling, to be deployed during a single site investigation programme.

    Whether your project site is located at the bottom of the ocean or in shallow waters, it’s hard to tell what’s going on beneath the surface. And how your project may be impacted by those conditions – or even at risk. That’s where we come in. At Fugro, we provide you with a complete understanding of the conditions and hazards at your project site. With our reliable, accurate data, you’ll be able to manage and minimise risks. And together we’ll come up with the best, most cost-effective foundation design for your site that lasts a lifetime.
