On 1st March 2011, Fugro formally took delivery of a new-build vessel, M/V Fugro Galaxy; the second of Fugro's FSSV series of dedicated survey vessels. Designed to Fugro specifications and fitted with the latest survey equipment these are the most advanced vessels of their type.
The new vessel will be able to carry out the full range of site and route survey tasks to obtain the high resolution data necessary for safe, efficient and cost-effective planning, design and engineering activities for the installation of pipelines, platforms, manifolds, wind turbines and other seabed structures.
Fugro Galaxy is part of Fugro's global vessel replacement schedule with the objective of removing older tonnage from the fleet and differentiating Fugro from other providers.
