Offshore staff

GALVESTON, Texas – Fugro has debuted its newbuild geophysical survey vessel, Fugro Americas.

Following completion of construction in Louisiana earlier this year, the vessel conducted a geochemical coring campaign in the Caribbean Sea.

Measuring 193 ft (59 m) in length, Fugro said the multi-purpose vessel is suited for high-resolution geophysical surveys and seafloor mapping. It is permanently mobilized for rapid deployment throughout the Americas.

Fugro also owns and operates three Hugin AUV systems, two depth rated to 3,000 m (9,842 ft) and one to 4,500 m (14,764 ft), all of which are portable and able to be mobilized onto the Fugro Americas.
