FUGRO TO PROVIDE SURVEY VESSEL TO SUPPORT SEARCH FOR MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 370
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) has awarded Fugro a contract that will see the deployment of its specialist vessel, equipment and expertise in the underwater search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 (MH370).
Using its advanced survey vessel, the Fugro Equator, fitted with state-of-the art multibeam echosounder equipment, Fugro will conduct a bathymetric survey of the search area. The seabed data obtained will assist in the production of maps of the seabed offshore Western Australia. This area is relatively uncharted and the maps will assist in planning subsequent stages of the MH370 search. Fugro and ATSB expect the Fugro Equator to begin its operation by mid-June.
