Fugro has been awarded a contract by Navitus Bay Development Ltd to provide real-time bankable wind profile data for a twelve month period using the Seawatch Wind LiDAR Buoy. The LiDAR buoy has achieved close to 100% data availability despite experiencing several storms since its deployment at the beginning of February.
This compact and robust multipurpose LiDAR buoy, which in addition to wind profiles also measures waves, current profiles and standard meteorological parameters, was demobilised from the Eneco Luchterduinen wind farm off the coast of Holland and made ready for deployment at the Navitus Bay site, off the UK’s Dorset and Hampshire coasts, within a period of just three weeks.
Fugro creates value by acquiring and interpreting earth and engineering data and providing associated consulting services to support clients with their design and construction of infrastructure and buildings. Fugro also supports clients with the installation, repair and maintenance of their subsea infrastructure.
Fugro works around the globe, predominantly in energy and infrastructure markets offshore and onshore. It employs approximately 13, 500 employees in over seventy countries. In 2014 Fugro’s revenue amounted to EUR 2.6 billion; Fugro is listed on Euronext Amsterdam.
