A First for Egypt as Fugro Revolutionizes Subsea Installation for GUPCO

Fugro has revolutionized a subsea installation program for Gulf of Suez Petroleum Company (GUPCO) with its innovative QuickVision® technology.

Used for the first time in Egypt, the contactless positioning solution replaced the conventional survey sensors typically attached to subsea structures during installation.

Under a contract with Dragon Oil (GUPCO), Fugro delivered subsea positioning support for the installation of multiple subsea structures off the coast of Egypt. To meet the requirements for improved safety and lower project costs, Fugro deployed their QuickVision solution. This state-of-the art vision technology uses a smart camera, attached to a remotely operated vehicle, that can determine the heading and attitude of a subsea structure as it is landed. This eliminates the requirement to pre-install a sensor package on the structure, and retrieve it once installation is complete, which reduces the time and costs associated with a dive support vessel.
