Survey vessel completes maiden voyage

Premier geophysical survey vessel, the Fugro Americas, has successfully completed its maiden voyage where it obtained data collection for a geochemical coring campaign in the Caribbean.

Departing from the construction shipyard in Louisiana in April, mobilisation for the campaign followed immediately. The stable design along with the experienced crew enabled the efficient and intelligent data collection to further enhance survey results.

141 piston cores and seven heat flow measurements that yielded over 1500 biological and geochemical samples, were included within the successful project.

Comments on success

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

Fugro Americas represents a pivotal advancement in multi-purpose geophysical survey operations and, alongside its comprehensive understanding of the dynamic objectives and constraints of deepwater operations, supports the company’s global commitment of exceeding client expectations.
