Fugro wins 2-year contract for remote positioning services off Indian west coast
20 October 2021OCS Services Pvt. Ltd (OCS), one of India’s leading marine service providers, has awarded Fugro a 2-year contract to support its asset integrity and corrosion management operations off the west coast of India. The contract was awarded based on Fugro’s offshore operational excellence and successful track record in India. Fugro will help OCS deliver on ONGC’s Protective Coating of Process Platform Project 1 (PCPP1), an infrastructure project to maintain and refurbish 32 offshore platforms in 7 clusters. The project is expected to be completed by May 2023.
For the first time in India, Fugro will provide survey Geo-data and positioning via remote support solutions controlled from one of its state-of-the-art remote operations centres (ROC). Fugro’s integrated digital solutions will allow OCS to identify debris, seabed features, and subsea pipelines and structures near Process Platform areas to protect the marine environment from future damage. Remote support will also enable OCS to monitor their operations in real-time and thus empower early decision-making as the project progresses.
Sangram Dhote, Director at OCS, said: "This collaborative approach will set a new standard to managing the safety of operations in the Mumbai High Field."
Swaminathan Subramanian, Marine Asset Integrity Manager for Fugro in India, said: "We are very excited to be awarded this contract and are looking forward to collaborating with OCS on a successful project delivery that benefits from Fugro’s remote operations expertise and the highest safety standards.”
