Rio de Janeiro shipyard is resurrected and 3 ships have already been ordered

The Rio de Janeiro shipyard should start hiring and activities in the 2nd half of this year

Finally some breath of relief for the citizen Rio, especially professionals in the marine and offshore sector. The EISA ( Shipyard Ilha S/A) now has a new manager, KPMG, which took over this shipyard a few weeks ago. The group is currently negotiating with creditors and shipowners, hoping to resume activities interrupted since 2015.

KPMG hopes that the sector will start to improve, making contracts viable and resuming the projects that are in place as of July 2017.

EISA has in its portfolio of foreseen services, three container transport ships:

  • One unit is almost ready, with just a few installations and a few more operational tests to go.
  • Another ship with 70% building and is already in the career
  • The third is missing to integrate the modular blocks

The Navy is playing hard to get but negotiations are moving forward

Bargaining with the Navy is not at all easy, but the institution has shown itself to be flexible and soon there will be agreed agreements. The shipyard's president, Diego Salgado, stated that they are closer than ever to closing this contract, because from a technical and economic point of view, EISA is the best option.

Salgado also adds that the economic crisis drastically reduced orders in the naval sector, even more so when Astromarítima and Brasil Supply filed a lawsuit revoking this undertaking.

With Astromarítima, negotiations are underway to complete the construction of a PSV 3.000, which is already on track. But with Brasil Supply, things are a bit stuck.

Diego Salgado said that these two companies represent around 40% of the entry capital to leverage the services. The other contracts would come eventually, if successful, after negotiations with Log-In and the Brazilian Navy. This project may also entail other types of services such as repair services, mooring, activities with cranes and warehouses.

The shipyard's president reinforces that around 1500 professionals will be called at the beginning. The forecast is for the second half of 2017.
