Fugro acquires contract for Spanish coastline oceanographic network

The Spanish harbour authority, Puertos del Estado, has awarded Fugro a two year service and maintenance contract for an existing ocean buoy network along the Spanish coast line. The contract value is € 3,9 million, with an option to extend the contract for an additional four years, in which case, the total value could reach over € 12 million.

19 Jan 2009

The Puertos del Estado Deep Water Network, is designed to measure marine climatic parameters and was set up in 1996 in a supply and maintenance contract between Puertos del Estado and Fugro. The system currently consists of 23 operating buoys and three current meter strings in 15 positions all stretching along the entire coastline of Spain. Staff of the Fugro office in Madrid will operate the system.

Fugro has in the past also delivered several buoys to the Centro Oceanográfico de Santander (IEO); AZTI-Tecnalia and the Instituto Canario de Ciencias Marinas (ICCM) and will, through these contracts, strengthen its position in the Spanish market.
