Fugro hired for remote positioning services in India
Fugro has won a two-year contract with Indian marine service provider OCS Services for remote positioning services off the west coast of India.
Fugro will help OCS deliver on ONGC’s Protective Coating of Process Platform Project 1 (PCPP1), an infrastructure project to maintain and refurbish 32 offshore platforms in seven clusters.
The project is expected to be completed by May 2023.
Fugro’s integrated digital solutions will allow OCS to identify debris, seabed features, and subsea pipelines and structures near Process Platform areas to protect the marine environment from future damage.
According to the company, this is its first time in India to provide survey Geo-data and positioning via remote support solutions controlled from one of its remote operations centers (ROC).
Remote support is also expected to enable OCS to monitor its operations in real-time and therefore support early decision-making as the project progresses.
Swaminathan Subramanian, marine asset integrity manager for Fugro in India, said: “We are very excited to be awarded this contract and are looking forward to collaborating with OCS on a successful project delivery that benefits from Fugro’s remote operations expertise and the highest safety standards.”
