Fugro has signed a four-year agreement with Heerema Marine Contractors for survey and positioning support services on board Heerema’s heavy lift crane vessels. Survey geo-data and positioning support will assist Heerema in identifying seabed structures and debris while providing centimetre level precision for installation projects.

Fugro will use its innovative vision technologies, such as QuickVision, 3Direct and InclinoCam, combined with remote services and expert teams to optimise Heerema’s offshore installation and decommissioning campaigns across Europe, the Americas, Middle East, and APAC regions.

Real-time touchless inspection and monitoring

Real-time touchless inspection and monitoring technology offers a much safer, more efficient, and sustainable solution to offshore operations. Remote support will also enable Heerema to monitor its operations in real-time leading to faster and more informed decision making as their projects progress.

‘Our vision-based technologies and remote services improve staff safety, significantly reduce project complexity, accelerate turnaround times, and allow operations to be conducted in a wider weather window – critical benefits for Heerema as they complete campaigns over the next four years,’ says Thijs Prins, Fugro’s Service Line Director Marine Asset Integrity. ‘We’re proud to be delivering innovative solutions that support the responsible installation, maintenance and decommissioning of offshore energy assets.’
