Fugro supports NIOT’s coastal Community Development Plan with a large-scale bathymetry Survey in India


India’s National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) has commissioned Fugro to carry out a bathymetric survey along the Andhra Pradesh coast in south-eastern India.

The survey will facilitate the Indian Government’s plans to develop and manage the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) to benefit the coastal community and protect marine living resources. The data will also be used for a range of scientific research projects and coastal resilience studies like assessment of coastal vulnerabilities and geohazard potential and ocean climate change.

The six-month project started in November 2021. Fugro will survey around 56,000-line kilometres of coastline in total, collecting bathymetric data in water depths between High Tide Line (HTL) and 30 m.

To gather insights about the seabed, Fugro’s specialist team is using a shallow-water boat equipped with a dual frequency echosounder and a differential global positioning system for data acquisition. For safe and efficient surveying in very shallow water (up to 5 m) and the surf zone area, the Fugro team is going to use jet ski equipped with Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) and a single beam echosounder. Real-time kinematic positioning (RTK) technology is being used for topography survey.

Dr G A Ramadass, NIOT Director, said: ”We are very keen to maximise the benefits of Fugro’s innovative technologies, which will deliver high levels of data quality and accuracy.”

Mr. Bibhu Nayak, Fugro Country Manager in India, said: ”We are honoured to be part of this prestigious project, which will help strengthen our relationship with the NIOT.”

Anglo American completes first Sea Trial using Bend of Biofuel and very low Sulphur Fuel Oil to reduce Emissions from Ocean Freight

Anglo American has successfully completed a sea trial using biofuel blended with very low sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO), reducing carbon emissions by approximately 10%. The trial further demonstrates the potential for sustainable biofuel to be used as a ‘drop-in’ fuel, improving its viability to help reduce emissions in the shipping sector. The fuel was blended and bunkered in Singapore, marking an important step in establishing a local supply chain and a cost-efficient, low-carbon biofuel offer for the region.

Increasing social Acceptance in the Management of Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF)

Increasing social Acceptance in the Management of Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF)

28. October 2021 (1940 Clicks)

Ensuring social acceptance for mining projects, and especially when it comes to settling ponds for mine tailings, is a huge challenge. Modern geomonitoring integrates data obtained from orbiting satellites, from overflying aircraft and from the surface of the ground, as well as from below it, to create a transparent and space and time-referenced process understanding. Geomonitoring technology is therefore an important tool for risk management and communication over the course of the mining lifecycle.
