Fugro has been awarded a supply arrangement by the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) to provide vessel based survey services.
Under the contract CHS will procure hydrographic surveys as needed, anywhere in Canada, to enhance its capacity for data acquisition and processing in support of its nautical charting programme.
Hydrographic survey data from ports, harbours, nearshore and offshore regions will be acquired and processed using Fugro’s vessels, equipment and personnel.
The resulting data will be used by CHS ultimately to update its nautical charts.
The arrangement adds to a similar deal for Airborne LiDAR Bathymetry (ALB) awarded in 2013, sees Fugro working with Canadian government in its plans to implement an integrated multi-platform methodology to hydrographic surveying anywhere in Canada, including the Arctic region.
The company provides International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) compliant survey services to numerous governments throughout the world.
