Fugro provides geotechnical, survey and geoscience services to oil and gas, renewable energy, building and infrastructure, mining, and public sector industries. Fugro employs approximately 12,500 employees in over sixty countries.
The Starfix and Skyfix DGNSS systems are operated by Fugro, and provide correction information to GPS and GLONASS navigation and survey systems. These systems are also called Seastar (for dynamic positioning) and Omnistar (for land).
Fugro was founded in 1962 under the name Ingenieursbureau voor Funderingstechniek en Grondmechanica FUGRO. In April 1992, Fugro was indexed on the Amsterdam Stock exchange. In 2003, Fugro bought Thales GeoSolutions for €147.5m. In September 2012, CGGVeritas acquired Fugro’s Geoscience Division for €1.2 billion. In January 2015, Royal Boskalis Westminster increased their shareholdings in Fugro to 20.1%.
Fugro is divided into three major business lines across five regions. Each region is assigned a regional manager, who works with counterparts to develop regional strategies and improve collaboration across the regional lines. This regional model is intended to deliver a standard approach to practices such as quality, health, safety, security, environment, project management, finance, etc.
