Capabilities

Floating production systems rely on accurate and timely information derived from diverse sensors and subsystems that collect and relay data about environmental, positional and structural conditions.

NorthStar™ integrates all of these data and presents them in a single, intuitive interface. Attuned to specific facilities and conditions, and benefiting from Fugro's extensive in-house expertise and resources, NorthStar™ offers a unique and reliable asset-wide overview that contributes to the improved management of facilities, efficiency optimisation and contingency planning.

Fugro NorthStar Flyer

PilotSTAR Berthing Aid System (BAS)

Our PilotSTAR berthing aid system provides positioning assistance during tanker offloading operations with a CALM buoy or in tandem with an FSO/FPSO to help improve safety and reduce the risk of collision.

Helideck Monitoring System (HMS)

Our helideck monitoring system provides reliable information on helideck motion and weather conditions required during pre-flight planning and continually during the flight.

Satellite positioning

Fugro supports your offshore work with a global network of reference stations, monitoring signals from GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Beidou and Galileo) satellites and generating corrections to significantly improve the accuracy of unaugmented GNSS signals.

Offshore structural monitoring

Measuring environmental and structural loading on offshore platforms, wellheads and risers can generate cost savings by extending operating life, identifying design conservatism and providing long-term integrity assurance and design verification.

Metocean surveys

A good understanding of meteorological and oceanographic (metocean) conditions reduces uncertainty in engineering specifications, provides help in operational planning, leads to reduced costs, and enhances safety and operational efficiency.

Offshore weather forecasting services

Reliable weather forecast information enables efficient day-to-day planning and informed decision-making for offshore and onshore operations.
