Fugro has no less than four shortlisted entries in this year’s Ground Engineering (GE) Awards, a leading showcase of technical excellence and achievement in ground engineering.

Geotechnical work performed by Fugro for the A9 trunk road dualling from Perth to Inverness, Scotland, is in contention for Ground Investigation Project of the Year. Shortlisted in two categories, Product and Equipment Innovation and Technical Excellence, is a rapid scanning condition assessment system co-developed by Fugro and United Utilities for the Haweswater Aqueduct. Fugro’s two-in-one cone penetration test (CPT) and sampling system, designed to boost productivity of nearshore site investigations, is also among the finalists for Technical Excellence.

Over 100 shortlisted entries will compete across 14 categories in the coveted awards which are closely followed by engineering professionals around the globe. Winners will be announced at a gala ceremony in London on 30th June.

Marcus Rampley, managing director of Fugro GeoServices said “It’s less than a year since we integrated our UK geotechnical activities and it’s great to see our diverse range of services recognized in this way”.

WaveWalker 1, the innovative walking jack-up developed by Fugro and Van Oord, scooped the GE Award for Product and Equipment Innovation in 2014.
