One benefit of being engaged with companies in the Maritime industry is the opportunity to learn about innovative companies literally mapping the maritime space. Through the Maritime Alliance I have had the privilege of meeting Furgo Pelagos, a local yet international firm mapping the sea floor!
Founded in the Netherlands in 1962, Fugro Pelagos is a global provider for high resolution hydrographic and geophysical marine survey products and services. Additionally, the company provides and interprets earth and engineering data and surveys to aid customers in construction and design of facilities or maintenance and repair of infrastructure. As an offshoot of the Fugro Companies, Fugro Pelagos provides services to both public and private sectors with operating offices along the West Coast in California, Washington, and Alaska. The company offers professional services in Lidar Surveying, Hydrographic surveying, marine services, and Ultra-High Resolution offshore seismic surveying.
