Forship Group to enter a new O & M contract with Petrobras

Rio de Janeiro, April 06, 2017 - Forship will provide Operational and Maintenance Support services at the Maritime Facilities Services (SIMA) unit.

Forship Group has entered a new contract with Petrobras, thereby strengthening its operations in the Operation & Maintenance (O&M) area. Under this project, Forship will provide Operational and Maintenance Support services at the Maritime Facilities Services (SIMA) unit.

Activities shall encompass vessels BGL-1 and BGL-2, as well as service barges (numbers 1, 3, 5, 6 and 8), including cargo handling, seafaring, scaffolding, industrial painting, welding, industrial safety, salvage, radio operation and basic maintenance. The time frame for delivering the service is 180 days, with possibility of an extension.

Recognized Expertise

This project is aligned with company's expertise in industrial plants O&M, with slightly different features. "Cargo handling, salvage and seafaring activities will require special care. Although we are quite aware of the specifics of such activities on the rigs, we have not actually performed," says Forship Group Implementation Manager Marco Kronemberger.

The challenge, as always, will not be a problem for Forship Group. "Our strategy is to hire professionals with such expertise, incorporating them into Forship teams. Just as successfully done in other projects, the engaged workforce will be given the appropriate training," explains Kronemberger. In all, some 180 employees will be mobilized in four teams that will board in turns in the capital cities of Rio de Janeiro and Espírito Santo, as well as in the city of Macaé (RJ).
