CHS Contracts Fugro for Hydrographic Services

Fugro has been awarded a Supply Arrangement by the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) to provide vessel based hydrographic survey services. Under this contract CHS will procure hydrographic surveys as needed, anywhere in Canada, to enhance its capacity for data acquisition and processing in support of its nautical charting program.

 
Hydrographic survey data from ports, harbors, nearshore and offshore regions will be acquired and processed using Fugro’s vessels, equipment and personnel. The resulting data will be used by CHS ultimately to update its nautical charts.
 
This Supply Arrangement, together with the Supply Arrangement for Airborne LiDAR Bathymetry (ALB) awarded in 2013, will enable Fugro to fully support the Government of Canada in its plans to implement an integrated multi-platform methodology to hydrographic surveying anywhere in Canada, including the Arctic region.
