Fugro’s new-build geophysical survey vessel, the Fugro Americas, has completed data collection for a geochemical coring campaign in the Caribbean on June 11, 2015. The project marks the maiden voyage of the new-build vessel.

The ‘Fugro Americas’ was built by Thoma-Sea Marine Constructors in Louisiana, with supervision by Fugro Marine Services. The delivery of the vessel took place on March 18, 2015. Fugro said that mobilisation for the campaign immediately followed the vessel’s departure from the construction shipyard in Louisiana in April.

According to the company, the integrated project comprised 141 piston cores and 7 heat flow measurements that yielded over 1,500 biological and geochemical samples.

Caribbean Port Agencies, Inc. said: “It was a very successful project, both for the vessel owner and the oil major that contracted her for the work.”

The 59 metre-long vessel is capable of carrying out a wide range of offshore services including high resolution geophysical and light geotechnical surveys in water depths of up to 4,500 metres.
