New-build survey vessel, Fugro Americas: client showcase

Making her debut at the Martin Midstream Dock in Galveston, Texas, USA, Fugro’s premier geophysical survey vessel, the Fugro Americas, was showcased to top clients, with over 100 in attendance.

Houston, TX, USA

Fugro gave guided tours of the new-build vessel, with geophysical, geoscience, survey and HSE professionals on hand to demonstrate its state-of-the-art equipment and features along with the working parts of a geophysical survey. Clients were able to view the advanced survey instrumentation, including Fugro’s 3,000-metre-rated AUV, from a first-hand perspective, which prompted positive comments on the vessel’s impressive equipment and exceptional design. The two-day event provided an important opportunity for clients to not only view the Fugro Americas and its equipment, but also to understand how Fugro’s capabilities consistently meet their survey needs.                           

The Fugro Americas departed the construction shipyard in Louisiana on April 13th and was immediately mobilised to the Caribbean for a highly successful geochemical coring campaign. Measuring 193 feet in length, the multi-purpose vessel is well suited for high resolution geophysical surveys and seafloor mapping and is permanently mobilised for rapid deployment to locations throughout North and South America.

Fugro also owns and operates three Hugin AUV systems, two depth rated to 3,000 metres and one to 4,500 metres, all of which are portable and able to be mobilised onto the Fugro Americas or other vessels of opportunity.
