Marine and offshore engineering consultancy firm Aqualis Offshore has been awarded contracts by Modec to provide marine warranty services to three different FPSO projects in Brazil.
The company will act as marine warranty surveyor for the integration of the MV29 FPSO at BrasFELS shipyard in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
In the meantime, BrasFELS has appointed Aqualis Offshore to provide marine warranty services for the marine operations and departure of the P-66 and P-69 FPSOs that the yard is building for Petrobras.
Aqualis Offshore will oversee loadouts, transportation and installation of modules and high-value equipment, plus quayside mooring and tow to field. The contract values are undisclosed.
“Our experienced surveyors and engineers are highly familiar with local shipyards and client requirements. That makes it easier for us to add value on site and ensure that the operations are conducted safely and efficiently. Our team’s FPSO track record in Brazil is extensive and we believe these contract awards reflect this,” said Dr Andreas Theophanatos, director for South America, Aqualis Offshore.
