October 20 - Aqualis Offshore has been awarded contracts to provide marine warranty services to three different floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) projects in Brazil.
Modec has appointed Aqualis Offshore to act as marine warranty surveyor for the integration of the MV29 FPSO at the BrasFELS shipyard in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
BrasFELS also selected Aqualis to provide marine warranty services for the marine operations and departure of the P-66 and P-69 FPSOs, which the shipyard is building for Petrobras.
Aqualis will oversee load out, transportation and installation of modules and high-value equipment, plus quayside mooring and tow to field. All three FPSOs will be installed in pre-salt fields offshore Brazil.
Dr Andreas Theophanatos, director for South America, Aqualis Offshore, stated: "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."
