Fugro accelerates Atlantic Shores project


United StatesFugro has completed the first phase of a two-year contract with Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind (Atlantic Shores) to establish and operate a centralized, cloud-hosted Geo-data repository for Atlantic Shores’ lease development off the coast of New Jersey in the United States.

The web-based engagement platform, which uses Fugro’s Gaia technology, was just delivered and provides Atlantic Shores and their stakeholders with a single source of updated Geo-data and documentation. Fugro will support the Gaia system until 2022 in order to assist Atlantic Shores in achieving streamlined decision making and an expedited project schedule.


Fugro is merging public datasets and previous project data with real-time field data to create the Geo-data repository, which will include information from Fugro’s ongoing metocean, geophysical, geotechnical, and environmental programs. The method allows for real-time tracking of the site characterization effort, as well as an updated ‘digital twin’ ground model of the lease area. This data is available to project stakeholders 24 hours a day, seven days a week, without the requirement for specialized software or GIS expertise; it also contains a data deliverable portal for obtaining post-processed datasets.
