Fugro has used their integrated augmented-reality solutions to support Jan De Nul Group’s offshore installation of two monopiles for the first two offshore wind turbine foundations in US federal waters.
Fugro used a range of vision technologies during the installation of both monopiles at the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project off the east coast of the US were safely positioned. Fugro’s surveyors supported the installation offshore on Jan De Nul Group’s jack-up installation vessel Vole au vent and onshore from a nearby temporary real-time kinematics (RTK) base station set up on the shoreline specifically for the project. They deployed several technologies including monitoring the heading and verticality in near real time, and applying Fugro’s augmented-reality solutions QuickVision and InclinoCam.
