Fugro forms partnership to benefit Taiwanese development


Fugro has announced that it has entered into a memorandum of understanding with International Ocean Vessel Technical Consultant (Iovtec) to offer marine site characterisation for projects in Taiwan.

The agreement follows on from a project undertaken by the two companies to deliver Fugro’s first geotechnical and geophysical survey in Taiwanese waters for r a major offshore wind farm last year.

Under the deal, the two companies will now install a lidar buoy to collect wind resource data off the Taiwanese coast in January 2018. In addition to its surveying activity, Iovtec will provide logistic and operational support to Fugro’s offshore metocean projects.

The agreement will see the two companies cooperate on marine survey projects in the waters surrounding Taiwan, with Iovtec expanding survey services in the country and Fugro providing fit-for-purpose technology, equipment and expertise.

“Iovtec brings to the memorandum of understanding its specialist skills in domestic hydrographic and bathymetric surveys for coastal mapping, government port and harbour agencies, dredging and marine contractors and offshore wind farm developers in Taiwan,” said Fugro director for marine site characterisation in the Asia Pacific region Jerry Paisley. “Fugro’s offshore wind experience around the world and Iovtec’s local skills make for an ideal partnership in Taiwan’s rapidly developing offshore wind sector.”
