Fugro Scout completes Middle East maiden project

Fugro Scout, the new 83-metre geotechnical drilling vessel, has completed its maiden project in the Middle East.

05 Oct 2015
Leidschendam, the Netherlands

Since its maiden project in the Persian Gulf it has been successfully deployed in the Arabian Sea and the Red Sea, completing several geotechnical and geophysical survey scopes for various clients. The vessel is currently in transit to The Netherlands to execute a geotechnical survey for an offshore windfarm in the Dutch sector of the North Sea.

The new vessel is specifically designed to address the varied demands of both the shallow and deep water survey markets. With a twin tower drilling derrick over a centrally located moon pool, the Fugro Scout supports automated pipe and tool handling equipment to promote safe drill floor operations. A large soil laboratory provides a unique open plan working environment for geotechnical operators; other equipment includes both downhole and seabed sampling and testing systems rated for 3,000 metres water depth. The vessel is equipped with a dynamic positioning station holding capability (DP2) and is built to Comfort Class COMF-V(3) standards with quarters for up to 60 operational staff.

Like the Fugro Voyager drillship, the new Fugro Scout vessel represents a further advancement in marine technology and enables Fugro to standardise its global operations. A range of specialist equipment and subject matter experts enables Fugro to help customers reduce the risks associated with wells and subsea infrastructure.
