Fugro wins IRM contract

Dutch owner Fugro has been awarded an inspection, repair and maintenance framework contract in the Asia Pacific region.

The three-year contract is worth around EUR80m ($86.4m), and services covered include an extensive range of inspection and engineering activities across the client’s operated offshore facilities. Fugro did not reveal the identity of the client.

Mark Heine, divisional director marine and member of the board of management at Fugro, commented: “We now have three multi-year IRM contracts in Asia Pacific, creating a solid base for this region’s Asset Integrity business line during the coming years.”

Fugro announced the sale of its Asia Pacific subsea business to Shelf Subsea in August 2016, but later scrapped the deal in December citing the inability to reach agreement on some closing conditions.
