Fugro is further strengthening its leading position as an unexploded ordnance (UXO) service provider with a recent multimillion-Euro contract award from TenneT. The Geo-data specialist is now set to commence integrated UXO services at an offshore wind farm development in Dutch coastal waters; the contract follows previous involvement in route survey activities at the site.

Bringing specialist vessel Atlantis Dweller into play in European waters for this contract reinforces Fugro’s operational excellence and ability to deliver time savings. The DP2 multipurpose vessel is permanently equipped with a work class remotely operated vehicle, providing fast and safe identification of potential UXOs. Other technology includes a sub-bottom imager which can reduce dredge scope, resulting in notable time savings.

Commenting on the identification and clearance (ID & C) project that begins in April, Business Development Manager Martin Valk said, “Fugro has conducted site characterisation work on a large number of offshore wind farm developments around the globe. Against a backdrop of continued growth in Europe, we are enhancing our ability to respond to demands for UXO ID & C services by bringing the Atlantis Dweller into our European vessel fleet.

“The vessel has been specifically configured for the offshore renewables market in Europe and is ideally suited for safe and efficient UXO ID & C services. Utilising the Atlantis Dweller and the onboard technology enables us to deliver operational excellence underpinned by the highest levels of efficiency and safety.”
