We continue in Maranhão

Rio de Janeiro, December 12, 2016 - New contract with Vale will include Carajás Railroad and Ponta da Madeira Rail Terminal. Forship Group to continue activities in Vale's projects Carajás Railroad (EFC) and the Ponta da Madeira Rail Terminal (TFPM), in Maranhão.

Under this new contract, the company will be in charge, until 2018, of managing the commissioning of assets and fixed facilities thereof, which has been designed for a logistics capacity of 230 million tons/year (MTPA) of minerals.

"We've been assigned the planning, monitoring and control of the Commissioning Process, as well as the Performance Testing and clearing of any pending issues regarding operational assets under the CLN S11D Project (North Logistics Training Program S11D), within the schedule," explains Forship Group Deployment manager Marco Kronemberger.

The project, which includes EFC duplication and remodeling, will rely on the HMSWeb computerized management system so as to ensure adherence to the commissioning methodology, in compliance with the planning and control, issuance and consultation to project's management reports, inspections scope definition, and guarantee of deadlines and quality.

Experience upholds business

The Deployment manager points out that the contract will ensure the continuity of São Luís (MA) branch for another two years. "In other words, we have activity guaranteed in the region for seven year," he explains. "By using the HMSWeb we are steadily consolidating the Commissioning Methodology in railroads construction with excellent results for our client, as regards the improvement of quality in the deliveries, deadlines acceleration and traceability of information. This strengthens Forship's position in this sector."

According to Marco Kronemberger, Forship Group's performance in Vale's projects, combined with the expertise and the dedication of the team engaged in the previous project, made up the differential that enabled winning this contract, which will require a greater commitment from the team mobilized, as we expect to exceed the needs and expectations of our client.

"The challenges remain the same as those in the previous contract – distances involved (around 900 km), the dispersion of the team, difficulty to access telephony and the Internet, displacements, acceptance of the commissioning methodology by new client's suppliers, and finally the delivery of the assets with the lowest number of pending issues," adds Kronemberger.

To overcome such obstacles, the company, together with the client, decided on an increase in the workforce assigned to this contract.

"Twenty-three had been assigned previously. We will now have 42 professionals assigned to the areas of infrastructure, superstructure, signage, environment, safety, electrical, mechanical and civil, plus two professionals specialized in Special Works of Art (OAE), due to the large number of bridges and viaducts to be commissioned.
