UK - Fugro to Take Delivery of New-built Vessel MV Fugro Pioneer

In Q1 2013 Fugro will take delivery of a new-built vessel, M/V Fugro Pioneer, the first of Fugro’s dedicated Offshore Survey Costal Vessel series. Featured on Stand 11121 at EWEA Offshore Amsterdam, the new vessel will operate in North-West European waters.

Designed to Fugro specifications and fitted with the latest survey equipment these new vessels are the most advanced of their type. The new 1300 GT Pioneer will be able to carry out the full range of site and route survey tasks to obtain the high resolution data necessary for safe, efficient and cost-effective planning, design and engineering activities for the installation of wind turbines, as well as pipelines, platforms, manifolds, and other seabed structures. It is capable of carrying a 60 T deck load and has a full range of cranes and winches and two moonpools.

The versatile 52.9 m Pioneer, designed for a cruising speed of 10 kn and a maximum speed of 11.5 kn, will include facilities for light geotechnical investigations (Vibrocores, CPT) and will be dynamic positioned (DP) capable. Accommodation on board, with 30 bunks, ten single and ten double cabins, a lounge and a gym as well as two suites and a meeting room, meets the expectations of Fugro staff and clients alike.

Fugro Pioneer is part of Fugro’s global vessel replacement schedule with the objective of removing older tonnage from the fleet and differentiating Fugro from other providers.
