Fugro has extended its integrated survey services to help improve efficiency in coastal management and enable more informed decision-making. A new agreement with global specialist EOMAP enables the creation of integrated bathymetric survey products that comprise elements from Satellite Derived Bathymetry (SDB), Airborne LiDAR Bathymetry (ALB) and traditional acoustic survey technologies. The integrated data and product solutions will provide clients with outstanding value and unmatched coverage.
“Teaming with EOMAP augments our considerable survey and satellite imagery capabilities and will allow a timely and cost-effective nearshore bathymetry review facility for clients whose own bathymetric holdings are either very old or very sparse – or both, ” said Don Ventura, Hydrographic Business Development Manager at Fugro. “This service will help coastal zone management and engineering teams, environmental scientists and hydrographic agencies to focus on their immediate needs and to make more informed decisions on subsequent, efficient data acquisition and management.”
EOMAP’s robust technology platform can process satellite images and deliver global bathymetric and benthic habitat data over the full range of temporal and spatial resolutions through its proprietary, sensor-independent Modular Inversion Processor (MIP). This both complements and augments services already provided by Fugro, to provide even more spatial data solutions to suit a wide variety of budgets and purposes.
“We are very pleased to provide our Satellite Derived Bathymetric products and services to Fugro, ” said Matthew Bergin, Vice President of Business Development at EOMAP. “We believe that this agreement will create a unique, one-stop technology resource to meet the demanding requirements of both commercial and government customers.”
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 is an independent service provider.
Fugro works around the globe, predominantly in energy and infrastructure markets offshore and onshore employing 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.
