GEOTECHNICAL DRILLING VESSEL WORKING AT BOSPHORUS STRAIT
The Fugro Scout is designed and constructed in compliance with the Code of Safety for Special Purpose Ships (2008).
It has been specifically designed for stateof-the-art geotechnical operations in water depths up to 3,000 metres for both drilling and seabed sampling and in situ testing.
The twin tower type drilling derrick is installed over a centrally located moonpool.
Drilling is performed with a heave motion compensated ram type drilling system. The drilling machinery and equipment, rig pumps, drilling fluid bulk storage and mixing equipment and ancillary equipment is installed below deck providing a clear, uncluttered main deck / drill floor area that when combined with automated pipe and tool handling equipment promotes safe drill floor operations.
