Fugro bags Ichthys award
Fugro Spatial Solutions Pty Ltd, based in Australia has been awarded a dimensional control survey subcontract by JKC Australia LNG Pty Ltd, as part of the construction of the Ichthys Project Onshore LNG Facilities, near Darwin, Australia.
This contract will run until the end of 2015, with Fugro’s specialist surveyors supplying high precision survey services to the project team for the installation and hook-up of the Ichthys LNG plant modules by accurately measuring the interface points.
Modern Dimensional Control combines 3-dimensional mathematical modelling with surveyed measurements providing the ability to analyse or compare objects. Originating in the offshore industry, it is now used by Fugro’s surveyors in the engineering, manufacturing, mining, marine, aeronautical and automotive industries.
Fugro Spatial Solutions’ Managing Director, Bill Jones said that ”the contract award acknowledges Fugro’s knowledge and experience gained from previous dimensional control surveys associated with onshore LNG facilities. Fugro’s strength as an established provider of Dimensional Control surveys to the oil and gas market, along with our ability to service clients globally through an experienced and mobile workforce gave Fugro an advantage to secure this contract.”
