The first among many works to come, the Jurong Aracruz shipyard celebrates this new step towards the resumption of activities.

[supsystic-social-sharing id='1′]With our shipyards scrapped due to the economic crisis that hit the entire shipbuilding and assembly, finally a prelude of optimism begins in the sector. the Jurong Aracruz shipyard has just been awarded a contract to assemble the FPSO P-68 in the CARRY OVER mode, which opens a range of new precedents for the economy and for those who are professionals in this field. The following is the transcription of the article from the website petronews 

“In difficult times for the Brazilian naval sector, at least some good news. The Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz (EJA) shipyard, in Espírito Santo, which belongs to the Sembcorp Marine group, from Singapore, won a US$ 145 million contract for carry over work on FPSO P-68.

The contract was signed with the Tupi BV consortium, which is formed by Petrobras Netherland BV, BG and Galp. In July 2012, Tupi BV awarded EJA the contract for the construction of modules and integration of the P-68 platform vessel.

The vessel will operate in the pre-salt layer of the Santos Basin, with a production capacity of 150 barrels per day. The unit will be able to store up to 1,6 million barrels of oil and will operate at a water depth of 2,2 meters.

The hull, which was built at the Rio Grande Shipyard, in Rio Grande do Sul, weighs 52 thousand tons, is 288 meters long, 54 meters wide and 31,5 meters deep (height from the bottom of the tanks to the main deck). .” Source: PetroNotícias
