Fugro awarded Jumbo positioning contract for deepwater Mero 1 offshore Brazil

Fugro is providing positioning and construction support services for Jumbo Maritime, a leading offshore installation contractor, on the Mero 1 deepwater field development located approximately 180km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

Using their Starfix® Navigation Suite and augmented reality QuickVision® camera system, Fugro is supporting Jumbo in the safe and efficient installation of 35 subsea torpedo piles and 24 mooring lines down to water depths of 1,980m.

This critical infrastructure will be used to anchor the Mero 1 floating production unit and associated equipment.

The work is being performed onboard Jumbo’s Fairplayer heavy lift crane vessel and is estimated to take six months.

In addition to pre- and post-lay surveys of the piles and mooring lines, Fugro’s Starfix and QuickVision solutions will provide real-time positioning for subsea construction and installation activities without needing any hardware mounted on the subsea infrastructure, an approach which reduces risk, increases spatial awareness and streamlines workflows.
