Offshore service provider Fugro has been awarded a multi-year contract by Germany’s Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency for a geotechnical site investigation project in the German North Sea and Baltic Sea.
The programme will be completed in three phases over the next three years, and comprises geotechnical investigations at potential offshore wind farm development areas.
Fugro will provide geotechnical data acquisition from multiple geotechnical drilling vessels including Fugro Scout and Gargano, and geotechnical laboratory testing and reporting.
The total contract value is approximately EUR25m ($27.5m).
“Fugro’s track record in providing reliable geotechnical data in advance of the developers’ bidding rounds has certainly helped win this project; being able to mobilise two dedicated geotechnical vessels for the project was another major factor in our success in this award,” said Erik Vogt, Fugro’s project manager.
