Fugro’s newly outfitted chemistry laboratories will be able to simultaneously analyse a wider range of environmental contaminants in marine sediments, biota and water, from background trace levels to more contaminated sources, while the new marine biology laboratory will allow Fugro to expand their marine taxonomic service.

The laboratories form part of Fugro’s Edinburgh office, where a team of 40 marine chemists, biologists, and environmental scientists and consultants support a range of environmental Geo-data services. This increased capacity will support Fugro’s growing green industry client base in the offshore wind, marine cables and coastal development sectors, offering them an expanded range and increased capacity of laboratory services, including marine fauna identification and a range of organic and inorganic analysis.

John ten Hoope, Fugro’s Director of Marine Site Characterisation for Europe and Africa, said: “The expansion of our marine environmental laboratories strengthens our position as a centre of excellence providing vital Geo-data results to clients. These new facilities demonstrate Fugro’s commitment to marine environmental services and build on over 25 years’ experience in acquiring, analysing and advising on marine environmental Geo-data.”
