Fugro has invested over £1 million on extending its soils testing laboratory, increasing the capacity and state-of-the-art equipment. This is as a direct result of the significant increase in the number of samples being taken from offshore wind developments, coupled with Fugro’s existing work in the buoyant global offshore oil and gas industry. At the end of his visit to the soils testing laboratory Mr Vaizey spoke to 190 Fugro staff and described the company as innovative and cutting-edge.
