Fugro has successfully provided remote positioning services onboard a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel for Bluewater during a scheduled subsea inspection, repair and maintenance campaign in the North Sea. A recent week-long operation included accurate remote configuration of the positioning systems onboard the FPSO, the assisting anchor handling vessel and the dive support vessel, with no Fugro survey crew offshore. Fugro managed the remote operation from its centre in Aberdeen via a robust low bandwidth connection, enabling command and control of the integrated survey system onboard the vessel and communication with the FPSO marine crew. .
