Metso Outotec Business update on Russia Ukraine Conflict

As a result of Russia’s military actions against Ukraine, the European Union, the United States and other countries have announced severe sanctions against Russia. While the mining industry is currently not directly targeted by the sanctions, sanctions against the banking sector and individuals as well as other restrictions may have an impact on Metso Outotec and our customers’ Russia related businesses. Due to the current unclear and changing sanction situation, Metso Outotec has temporarily ceased its deliveries to Russia.

Fugro USV Project Team wins Energy Industry Game Changer Award

Fugro’s Blue Essence uncrewed surface vessel (USV) has been awarded the Energy Industry Game Changer Award at the 2021 Energy Club WA Award, an initiative of the Australian Institute of Energy (AIE). The award is presented to an individual or team who have made an outstanding contribution to the energy industry resulting in significant advancement of the industry’s knowledge and capability.

The Fugro and Woodside teams were presented with the award following the successful completion of the first entirely remote inspection project on 125 km of Woodside's gas trunklines, utilising the new Blue Essence 12 m USV, Fugro Maali in 2021.

Fugro’s USV offers a unique solution for subsea inspection that requires no offshore crew and demonstrates the many benefits of remote operations such as a reduction in CO2 emissions by up to 97% when compared to a traditional vessel solution, and the ability to remove personnel from high-risk environments. The USV and e-ROV conducted successful over-the-horizon operations during the project, further demonstrating the capabilities of this technology.

Paul Mullins, Director of Remote Operations for APAC said: “Fugro’s USVs and remote operations are changing the way the industry carries out subsea inspection operations and over the coming year the team will be pushing the boundaries on additional USV capabilities.”

Gateway Program completes Hudson Tunnel Geotechnical Investigation Work necessary to enter next Phase of Federal Grant Program


Total of 75 Geotechnical Investigations in NY and NJ Provide Vital Pre-Construction Information; 13 Geotechnical Borings Completed on Manhattan's Far West Side After Amtrak Acquired Property for Hudson Tunnel Project; Private Sector Collaboration Helps Mitigate Project Risk

The Gateway Program announced that it has completed the “Geotechnical Investigation” work, a necessary part of entering the Engineering Phase of the $5.6 billion Federal Transit Administration Capital Investment Grant (CIG) it is seeking for the Hudson Tunnel Project.

In total, the Project completed 75 geotechnical investigations. These included 64 borings in New Jersey and New York over several years, 37 of which were during the recently completed Phase 2 Supplemental Geotechnical Boring Program planned based on input from the private sector. The samples obtained from the borings will inform the design and engineering planning for full construction of the Project.

The borings were completed in Secaucus, NJ along the future above-ground alignment, in Union City, NJ along the future Palisades Tunnel alignment, at the Hoboken Project Site, along the future Hudson River Tunnel alignment under the Hudson River, and in Manhattan, NY at the Hudson River Park and at the 12th Avenue Project Site. Samples were taken at depths ranging from 48 feet to 505 feet.

The project also completed five Cone Penetration Tests, four Seismic Cone Penetration Tests, a marine geophysical survey in the Hudson River, and a surface-based geophysical survey along the Hudson Bergen Light Rail (HBLR) tracks in New Jersey.

In a joint statement, Gateway Development Commission Co-Chairs Steven M. Cohen of New York and Balpreet Grewal-Virk of New Jersey, along with Vice-Chair Tony Coscia of Amtrak, said: “Finishing geotechnical investigations to reduce risk and provide certainty on where and how to dig the first rail tunnel under the Hudson River in a century is a major accomplishment. This work is another example of our partners working together to advance the tunnel project as far as we possibly can in preparation for full funding and construction.  From building two sections of the tunnel casing in Manhattan, to advancing the design of the project to 30%, to achieving all the project’s regulatory approvals to completing this geotechnical work, we and our partners have shown over and over that no obstacle will stand in the way of finally delivering 21st Century rail transportation between New York and New Jersey.”

The Gateway Program conducted an extensive Request for Information process during 2017-2019, inviting the Private Sector to hear updates from leadership and staff and provide feedback and ideas on how the Tunnel project might progress. As part of that process, in 2019, the Gateway Program invited the Private Sector to comment on its plan for the Hudson Tunnel Project’s Phase 2 Supplemental Geotechnical Boring Program. The Gateway Partners refined the Phase 2 Supplemental Geotechnical Boring Program by incorporating Private Sector feedback on additional geotechnical boring locations, geotechnical investigations, and laboratory testing.

A pre-procurement Virtual Data Room was established in 2019 for qualified firms to access and review existing data. The Virtual Data Room provides important technical information about the subsurface geotechnical conditions that the Hudson Tunnel Project will encounter in New Jersey, under the Palisades, under the Hudson River, and in Manhattan. The Virtual Data Room will continue to be updated as data becomes available, and Qualified Organizations can continue to request secure access to the Virtual Data Room through the GDC website.

During the Project Development phase, FTA requires projects to complete at least 30 percent design and engineering, including geotechnical documentation. The geotechnical documentation is one element of a multi-document information package to be submitted when the project seeks approval from FTA to enter the Engineering Phase.

The 37 borings, 4 Seismic Cone Penetration Tests, and 2 geophysical surveys completed during the Phase 2 Supplemental Geotechnical Boring Program supplement the 27 borings and 5 Cone Penetration Tests conducted during the Hudson Tunnel Project’s previous geotechnical investigation phases, as well as numerous geotechnical investigations conducted as part of the Access to the Region’s Core Project and historical records from the construction of the North River Tunnel, PATH Tunnels, Holland Tunnel, Lincoln Tunnel, NJ TRANSIT’s Bergen Tunnel, and the NJ TRANSIT Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Weehawken Tunnel.
