Fugro launches online ground risk platform

Fugro has launched an online platform that integrates geotechnical, geological and structural information.

The new Gaia Insight platform will, according to Fugro, deliver geotechnical, geological and structural insights by integrating site investigation, real-time geotechnical and structural monitoring, internet of things and third-party data.

The platform provides the analytics required to lower ground risk and accelerate construction project schedules, Fugro say.

Fugro global business line director for land site characterisation Alexander van Noort said, “As a world leader in the provision and analysis of Geo-data and related advice, Fugro is in the strongest possible position to become the ‘Google Earth’ for subsurface data.

“We’ve designed Gaia Insight to overcome the challenge of understanding the Earth and visualising the subsurface in major construction works.”

Gaia Insight collects verified data in real time, and according to Fugro, reduces uncertainties, lowering the risks of geotechnical failure and avoiding disruption to the adjacent environment.

Noort adds: “This highly valuable, actionable intelligence allows clients to accelerate their projects, reducing costs and mitigating ground risk.”

The platform is already being used on over a 100 projects and processing 12M measurements a day.

Access to decision support and actionable intelligence from site investigation data, analytics and real time geotechnical and structural monitoring is supported by a cloud platform.

Fugro plan to expand the use of Gaia Insight in 2019.
