Fugro Wins Dutch UXO Contract

Fugro has secured a contract with TenneT for unexploded ordnance (UXO) services at an offshore wind project in the Netherlands.

Under the multimillion-euro contract, Fugro will bring DP2 multipurpose vessel Atlantis Dweller to its fleet to carry out identification and clearance (ID&C) activities beginning from April.

According to the Dutch company, the announcement follows previous involvement in route survey activities at the site.

“Against a backdrop of continued growth in Europe, we are enhancing our ability to respond to demands for UXO ID & C services by bringing the Atlantis Dweller into our European vessel fleet," said Fugro's Business Development Manager Martin Valk.

“The vessel has been specifically configured for the offshore renewables market in Europe and is ideally suited for safe and efficient UXO ID & C services. Utilising the Atlantis Dweller and the onboard technology enables us to deliver operational excellence underpinned by the highest levels of efficiency and safety.”

Atlantis Dweller is equipped with a work class remotely operated vehicle, as well as a sub-bottom imager which can reduce dredge scope, resulting in considerable time savings, the company said.
