Fugro OSAE GmbH (Bremen, Germany) has been awarded an allocation of the Baltic Sea and Bothnian Survey for the years 2012-13, consisting of a 7,100km² segment worth EUR 2.1 million.
Data acquisition will be accomplished by Fugro vessels, two of which, M.V. Meridian and M.V. Victor Hensen, have already done survey work on the previous year’s allocation of Baltic and Bothnian surveys. With water depths up to 300m, the survey will be undertaken following the Swedish and Finnish adaptation of the IHO Standards for Hydrographic Survey, S-44, namely FSIS-44.
The Baltic and Bothnian survey projects are co-managed by the Swedish Maritime Administration and the Finnish Transport Agency. These projects form a part of the EU-financed MONALISA (‘Motor-ways of the seas’) Project which aims to achieve efficient, safe and environmentally responsible maritime transport.
