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.
