The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) has awarded Fugro an additional contract for the deployment of two specialist vessels, equipment and expertise in the deepwater search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 (MH370).
 
Fugro will mobilize its vessels Fugro Equator and Fugro Discovery, both fitted with specialist deep tow survey systems for the work. Since June, the Fugro Equator has been involved in the bathymetric survey of the search area.
 
Fugro and ATSB expect the Fugro Discovery to begin the deep tow search late September with Fugro Equator joining shortly thereafter.
 
The search is expected to take up to 12 months but will understandably end if the missing aircraft is found beforehand. The Australian Government has allocated has AUS $60 million to the ATSB to carry out the search for MH370.
