Fugro Voyager Enters Service in Asia Pacific

Fugro Voyager Enters Service in Asia Pacific

Fugro Voyager, a purpose built DP2 geotechnical drilling vessel, is entering service with Fugro’s Offshore Geotechnical Division to expand its operations in the frontier areas of the Asia Pacific region. The new 83-metre vessel is specifically designed and built to address the varied demands of the region’s deepwater markets.

With a twin tower drilling derrick over a centrally located moon pool, the vessel has automated pipe and tool handling equipment to promote safe drilling floor operations. A large soil laboratory provides a unique open-plan working environment for the geotechnicians; other equipment includes both downhole and seabed sampling and testing systems rated for 3,000 metres water depth. Equipped with a dynamic positioning station-holding capability (DP 2), Fugro Voyager is built to Comfort Class COMF-V(3) standards with quarters for up to 60 persons.

The new vessel represents a significant investment in deepwater equipment for the region and demonstrates Fugro’s commitment to supporting its Asia Pacific customers. A range of specialist resources enables Fugro to help customers reduce the risks associated with wells and infrastructure as they venture into the region’s remote expanses.

Fugro Voyager is part of Fugro’s global fleet renewal strategy, where older tonnage is being replaced with new modern vessels, thereby differentiating the company from other offshore geotechnical providers. Her maiden contract includes seabed in situ testing, large diameter piston cores, drilled borings and downhole in situ tests in water depths up to 1,350 metres.
