Fugro Quest, a vessel equipped with advanced deep-water technology, is the newest addition to Fugro’s geotechnical vessel fleet. Fugro uses this type of vessel to determine the exact composition of the soil; the resulting data are essential to establish the optimal location and design of offshore developments, such as wind farms.
The vessel provides increased personnel and operational safety, whilst its energy efficient design results, on average, in lower fuel consumption than for other geotechnical vessels. Moreover, its ability to take hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) biofuel and remote operations and data processing capabilities support sustainable operations. The vessel will commence operations in December for Vattenfall's offshore wind farm near Norfolk in the United Kingdom.
