All systems go for ‘Fugro Venturer’ maiden voyage

Fugro’s latest geophysical & hydrographic survey vessel Fugro Venturer is getting ready to start its maiden voyage that takes it to the deep waters of Ireland’s Atlantic margin and the far north of the Barents Sea.

Fugro Venturer is the newest of Fugro’s purpose-designed, standardized survey vessels, originally formulated in 2013.

The 72-meter vessel is equipped with Fugro’s trademark technologies such as OARS (centralized command centers with direct access to offshore survey projects), Back2Base (enabling large amounts of survey data to be sent from offshore vessels to onshore processing centers and clients) and ROAMES (a powerful asset management solution streamlining subsea operations).

Fugro said on Tuesday that, following commissioning and survey trials, the company has secured a work backlog of site and pipeline route surveys for clients including Aker BP.

Fugro Venturer is contracted to conduct simultaneous analogue/digital surveys, 3D high resolution seismic and environmental sampling and shallow geotechnical operations.

According to the owner of the vessel, specialized equipment enables sampling in water depths of up to 3,500 meters and a permanent AUV hangar houses a Kongsberg Hugin 1000 autonomous underwater vehicle. The vessel can host a multitude of ROV platforms.

Phil Meaden, Regional Director Fugro Europe Marine, explains how the new multi-role vessel will support the company’s marine site characterization and asset integrity contracts: “The Fugro Venturer provides an exceptional range of survey solutions. She will be equally at home in the offshore wind farms of Europe, where Fugro is pioneering innovative UXO and UHR3D seismic surveys and in oilfield inspections, where our latest solutions include fast ROV and fully autonomous inspections.”
