ABU DHABI, UAE – Fugro has opened a new remote operations center (ROC) in Abu Dhabi.
The company now has eight ROCs operating across all four regions.
By combining the ROC’s capabilities with its new uncrewed surface vessel operations, Fugro’s teams can perform offshore work from onshore, allowing projects to be delivered faster, more safely, and with lower carbon footprints.
The company said it is deploying remote solutions in the Middle East to circumvent social distancing measures and allow marine site characterization and asset integrity projects such as rig positioning to stay on schedule.
David Washbrook, Fugro’s Director for Marine Asset Integrity in the Middle East and India, said: “Our remote solutions allow our clients to upgrade working processes that have been the same for decades and, as a result, derisk their projects, improve safety, optimize maintenance programs, and extend operational life of their assets.”
