New Vessels for Fugro Survey Fleet

Fugro is expanding its survey fleet in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) to include a new AUV, Echo Surveyor VII, and a new vessel, R/V Fugro Americas.

Both these impending launches indicate our strong capabilities and commitment to our clients in the GOM and internationally,” said Melissa Jeansonne, Vice President, Fugro GeoServices, Inc. “Both the Fugro Americas and Echo Surveyor VII will join the current fleet later in the year. We already operate three AUVs in the GoM – one Hugin (Echo Surveyor II), and two Bluefin (Echo Mapper); and our new multi-purpose Fugro Americas vessel enables us to have three vessels capable of operating AUVs in the Americas.”

AUVs are the ultimate choice of instrument platform for deep sea and remote surveys. As well as providing improved multibeam swath coverage, The Echo Surveyor VII will support the acquisition of sidescan sonar, sub-bottom profiler and CTD profiler data, and will carry various environmental sensors to meet a wide range of offshore survey demands.

With its tight turning circles that greatly reduce the time between survey lines, it will offer clients a wide range of features including an increase in depth rating to 4500 meters. Being fully airfreight portable, Echo Surveyor VII will also allow rapid mobilization.

The Fugro Americas is a state-of-the-art multi-purpose vessel well suited for high resolution geophysical surveys and seafloor mapping.
