LAFAYETTE — The Lafayette branch of Fugro GeoServices may be tapped to lend its expertise in the search for the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, the company announced Tuesday.

The local sea floor mapping company could send employees along with equipment to assist the Australian-led search operation.

Fugro’s Equator, an advanced survey ship with deep-water location equipment deployed from Fugro’s corporate headquarters in the Netherlands, is currently involved with the search, according to the company.

The vessel will take three months to complete its mapping of the relatively uncharted section of the ocean floor, some parts of which can be 20,000 feet deep.

The information collected by the vessel will generate a terrain map of the sea floor, and will help plan future stages of the search for the plane.

The current search zone, 1,100 miles west of Perth, Australia in the Indian Ocean, has turned up nothing so far.

Officials said they will continue the search south of the current zone in August.
