The islands will be used for public housing and infrastructure, creating a quality and sustainable living, and working environment for Hong Kong. 

Fugro’s professionalism in delivering quality Geo-data is well recognised by the industry and its unparalleled local expertise in performing nearshore geotechnical works in Hong Kong was a key factor in winning the contract, along with its strong delivery capability in providing comprehensive services and meeting tight schedules.

“We have recent success in quite a few large-scale site characterisation projects for civil infrastructure development,” says Mr William Fung, Service Line Director, Land Site Investigation & Monitoring, Fugro. “We will combine our global experience in marine geotechnical investigation with our local expertise in Hong Kong marine works to help the government meet the challenges of the site characterisation works for this large area of water.”
