Fugro Returns to the Aleutians for NOAA

Under it’s five-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with US National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Fugro Pelagos Inc. have commenced surveying operations around
the Aleutian chain’s Krenitzin Islands, Alaska in late July 2011. This 36 day program of Multi Beam Echo Sounder based bathymetry data collection for NOAA’s National Ocean Service (NOS) Office of Coast Survey (OCS) will result in approximately 6,000Km of survey lines being run around Akun and Akutan Islands and will provide data for updating NOAA’s nautical charts of the area. Since 2006, Fugro
Pelagos has successfully completed 22 task orders for NOAA. While the data collection phase of the project is expected to be complete by late August 2011, data processing and product creation is expected to run through the remainder of 2011. Read More
