Fugro Pelagos, Inc. has successfully negotiated a series of Task Orders and a new contract award with NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), a bureau of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
Fugro Pelagos will be conducting a USD 10.6 million Task Order for multibeam echo sounder based hydrographic surveys in various locations in Alaska in 2006/2007. The purpose of the survey is to help reduce the charting backlog.
In addition, Fugro Pelagos has begun operations on a USD 2.5 million Task Order conducting side scan sonar based post-hurricane debris mapping in shallow waters off the Alabama coast in the Gulf of Mexico.
Both Task Orders are part of the five-year period, USD 50 million ceiling contract announced in 2005.
Furthermore, Fugro Pelagos and NOAA have finalized the negotiation of a new three year, USD 30 million contract for conducting nationwide hydrographic surveys using airborne LIDAR (laser technology).
The operations will be executed from Fugro Pelagos' offices in Anchorage (Alaska), Stennis (Mississippi) and Honolulu (Hawaii).
