GORINCHEM, the Netherlands – Fugro has taken delivery of the second of the three Fugro offshore coastal survey vessels (FOCSVs) being built by Damen. The Fugro Pioneer is a compact survey ship capable of undertaking a wide range of survey, monitoring, and inspection operations.
The vessel is designed for a variety of survey and inspection duties including light geotechnical work, environmental baseline surveys, monitoring and inspection, and moon pool deployments. Diesel electric propulsion delivers excellent economy at all speeds.
Fugro Pioneer is the second of three survey vessels ordered by Fugro for delivery in 2014. Each will be operating in different parts of the world and so they have been adapted for the individual environments in which they will work. The operating company is a specialist in the acquisition of the full spectrum of survey data; therefore, the vessels have been tailored to be adaptable for a wide range of tasks.
