Fugro has been awarded a EUR 3.1 million hydrographic survey contract by the Finnish and Swedish Hydrographic Offices for a 13,000 km² area taking in shipping routes between Sweden and Finland, in the Gulf of Bothnia, Baltic Sea.


The areas to be surveyed in the summer of 2011 are within the Swedish and Finnish EEZ, but outside of each country's territorial waters. Results from the survey will be for updating nautical charts and associated navigational information, e.g. HELCOM routes.

Water depths in the project area range from less than 10m to deeper than 130m. Fugro will use two vessels, both fitted with multi beam echosounders of highest resolution. Survey operations are expected to begin as soon as ice-conditions allow, with an expected completion of acquisition in October 2011.

The project consists of separate contracts with both, the Finnish Transport Agency's (FTA), and the Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA) organisations.
