Press Release
Sunday, March 24, 2013

The merger earlier this year of Fugro's three UK-based environmental service providers to form Fugro EMU made it the largest organisation in the UK.

Fugro EMU Limited, the largest commercial marine environmental services organisation in the UK, employs in excess of 220 staff with expertise in oil and gas, renewables, aggregates, ports and harbours, cables and pipelines.

In the oil and gas industry we have over 40 years’ experience and have undertaken over 150 environmental assessments and 1,000 environmental surveys for exploration, development and decommissioning projects. The merger is already paying dividends with all the component parts of the new organisation working to a common aim.”

“Our track record of providing high quality consultancy, survey and analysis services will act as a springboard for further growth. We plan to further diversify our range of oil and gas services, while retaining the tailored, fit-for-purpose approach that clients and regulators have come to expect from us.”
