Fugro has been awarded the Craig Black Award for Innovation and Technology at Subsea Energy Australia’s 2021 Australian Subsea Business Awards.

Fugro was presented with the award for successfully completing the first entirely remote inspection project on 125 km of Woodside’s gas trunklines utilising its Blue Essence uncrewed surface vessel (USV), the Fugro Maali, earlier this year.

Deploying USV technology on the project reduced carbon emissions by 97% and sheltered personnel from the high-risk offshore environment.

“Fugro is extremely proud to receive this award, which represents the culmination of many months of hard work, dedication and collaboration from the team,” said Paul Mullins, Fugro’s Director of Remote Operations in Asia-Pacific.

Fugro’s Blue Essence USVs are operated remotely from onshore remote operations centres. The Fugro Maali is the first Blue Essence USV in service anywhere in the world.
