New survey vessel Fugro Americas successfully completes maiden voyage

Mobilisation for the campaign immediately followed the vessel’s departure from the construction shipyard in Louisiana in April. Her stable design and experienced, dedicated crew enabled efficient and intelligent data collection to enhance survey results beyond expectations. The integrated project comprised 141 piston cores and 7 heat flow measurements that yielded over 1,500 biological and geochemical samples. In an article discussing the campaign, Caribbean Port Agencies, Inc. asserted, “It was a very successful project, both for the vessel owner and the oil major that contracted her for the work.”

The Fugro Americas represents a pivotal advancement in multi-purpose geophysical survey operations and, together with Fugro’s comprehensive understanding of the dynamic objectives and constraints of deepwater operations, supports the company’s global commitment to exceeding client expectations.
