Optimisation of foundation design on one of world’s tallest buildings
Because of the height and unique design of the Dubai Creek Tower, detailed ground engineering is critical to reducing risks and maintaining the project on its tight schedule. In August 2017 Fugro completed one of the most comprehensive geotechnical site investigations ever performed in the region.
anticipated height of 928 metres
36,300 tons: world record for deep foundation testing load, applied on a single barrette
Efficient and accurate
Custom 3D software solution for efficient and accurate installation of offshore wind farm
Since the start of 2017, Fugro has been supporting the installation of the Beatrice wind farm offshore Scotland, by developing a 3D solution with real time analysis for precise and safe installation of the pre-piles and jackets.
successful installation of 344 piles on 86 locations
using approximately 50 sensors on the subsea installation frame
Fugro’s detailed data brings successful close to search for lost submarine
Fugro joined a search for the Australian submarine HMAS AE1 which was lost during World War 1 off the coast of Papua New Guinea. Using specialised survey technology, we scanned the seafloor through strong undersea currents and a complex terrain between two land masses. The submarine was found.
Fugro deployed the Fugro Equator vessel (with a sonar system mounted on the hull) and an autonomous underwater vehicle, which flew at 35 metres above the sea floor
Fugro contributes towards mapping the world’s oceans
Seabed 2030, a project initiated by GEBCO and the Nippon Foundation, is driven by a motivation to use the ocean sustainably and perform scientific research based on detailed information of the Earth’s Seabed. Fugro supports this initiative by acquiring and contributing bathymetric data from its vessels while transiting between projects.
35,000 square kilometres of bathymetry data contributed so far
covering 5,195 kilometres of ocean during an 8-day transit
Safe realisation of tunnels in urban area using real time monitoring
The Dutch city of The Hague contracted Fugro to monitor any movements of buildings and the ground surface during construction of the Rotterdamsebaan tunnel. To that end, Fugro has installed GeoRiskPortal®., one of the largest real time monitoring and Internet of Things systems ever developed in the Netherlands.
GeoRiskPortal® has so far been used in 70+ projects world wide
MESSAGE FROM THE CEO
This was the fourth consecutive year of an exceptionally deep downturn in offshore oil and gas services, currently our largest market.
The impact of the 25% lower oil and gas related revenue could not be fully compensated by continued capacity and cost reduction measures, and an organic 9% revenue increase in our other market segments (most notably building & infrastructure, renewables and power). We ended 2017 with an operational margin of -2%.
