FUGRO to survey in vicinity of Krenitzin Islands, KRENITZIN ISLANDS, ALASKA FOR NOAA

Fugro was awarded a task order under its five-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to survey around the Aleutian chain’s Krenitzin Islands, Alaska in summer 2012.

The survey, which will utilise Multi Beam Echo Sounder based bathymetric data collection from a mother ship and survey launches, is in support of NOAA’s National Ocean Service (NOS) Office of Coast Survey (OCS) to update Nautical Charts around Akun and Tigalda Islands. While the data collection phase of the project is expected to be complete by August 2012, data processing and product creation is expected to run through the remainder of 2012.
