Fugro is one of eight firms recently awarded a five-year hydrographic survey contract by the United States' National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Task orders under this indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract will support development of updated navigational charts in U.S. waters, including Alaska, Hawaii, the Territories and the Great Lakes. With a maximum value of USD 250 million the contracts call for both vessel- and aircraft-based hydrographic survey capabilities.
'We are honored to continue working with NOAA on its hydrographic charting program,' said David Millar, president of Fugro Pelagos. 'It is a tremendous responsibility to keep the nation's charts updated given the dynamic nature of our coasts. We take our role in this effort very seriously, dedicating the best possible technology and experienced staff to the task to ensure efficient and accurate results.'
