Fugro and Underwater Survey Technology 21 (UST21) have extended their Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to support the South Korean offshore wind market.

According to Fugro, the extension follows demand for combined geophysical, geotechnical and metocean data services. The original agreement was launched 2019. The two-year renewed agreement will enable Fugro, assisted by UST21’s local hydrographic expertise, to provide a package of geodata collection, interpretation and advice.

Fugro stated it has drawn on its full range of marine site characterisation services over the past three years, with UST21’s hydrographic mapping capabilities being integral in creating a unique synergy and scope of services between the two companies.

Jerry Paisley, Fugro’s Regional Director for Marine Site Characterisation, said: ”We are pleased to announce the extension of our Memorandum of Understanding with UST21 in South Korea. We believe it demonstrates Fugro’s commitment to this emerging market and our desire to establish long-term relationships within Korea. Our aim is to maximise the value and benefits of our innovative digital solutions, experienced personnel and regional resources in the delivery of market-leading geoscience data, precisely tailored to the needs of the client and their wind energy challenges.”
