Fugro inform that the Airport Authority of Hong Kong has awarded them a contract to carry out a major nearshore geotechnical and environmental ground investigation programme in the waters near the Hong Kong International Airport at Chek Lap Kok.
The contract, which is worth approximately EUR 8.8 million, will provide essential engineering and environmental information and will run until November 2014.
Fugro will carry out the works using a fleet of up to five vessels.
The company says that having performed several projects in the waters around Chek Lap Kok in recent years, it is very familiar with the challenges caused by the restrictions of working adjacent to one of the world’s busiest airports.
Fugro acquires and interprets Earth and engineering data to support the design, construction, installation, repair and maintenance of infrastructure. The company works predominantly in energy and infrastructure markets offshore and onshore, employing approximately 12,500 employees in over sixty countries. Fugro is listed on NYSE Euronext Amsterdam and is included in the AEX-Index.
