UK company Fugro has integrated and restructured several business units under one name – Fugro GeoServices.
The renaming completes the integration of UK specialists – Fugro Seacore, Fugro Engineering Services, EM Drilling, Fugro Loadtest, Fugro Instrumentation & Monitoring and Fugro Aperio, under one umbrella brand.
Fugro GeoServices employs close to 600 staff and undertakes seven activities: nearshore geotechnical; offshore geotechnical; marine installation; onshore ground investigation; cone penetration testing; and geophysics and instrumentation and monitoring.
The company also has geotechnical laboratories and carries out a range of built environment surveys and testing.
Fugro said the restructure is in line with its “continued integration of its global capabilities ‘without boundaries’ to deliver world class multi-service projects more efficiently in challenging market conditions”.
The company works offshore and on land providing engineering and geotechnical services for clients in the energy, infrastructure and mining sectors worldwide.
Projects include the Kribi port development (Cameroon), BP’s Azeri oilfield (Azerbaijan) and Flamanville nuclear power plant (France).
Significant UK projects include Hinkley Point nuclear power station, Gwynt y Môr and Walney offshore wind farms, HS2, as well as the Garden Bridge, Shard and Thames Tideway projects in London.
Fugro GeoServices managing director Marcus Rampley, said: “Our group delivers an amazing range of services to many sectors; we drill some of the biggest diameter holes in the ocean floor and test the foundations of the world’s tallest buildings, we inform the designers of offshore wind projects, tunnels and pipelines and we measure, test and monitor existing infrastructure throughout its lifecycle.”
