Huisman Opens New Production Facility in Brazil

Huisman, the worldwide specialist in lifting, drilling and subsea solutions, officially opened new production facility in Navegantes, Santa Catarina state, in the south of Brazil on Thursday April 16.

The facility is used for the manufacturing of offshore equipment for the Brazilian market. It is located along the Itajai-Açu river, enabling fast installation of Huisman equipment onboard sea going vessels. The new Huisman production facility was officially opened by Cristina Pinho, Executive Manager E&P Services at Petrobras, Huisman informed.

Joop Roodenburg, CEO of Huisman said: “The decision to open a production facility in Brazil is a logical answer to the great Brazilian equipment demand. Being able to produce our equipment locally provides us and our clients with an important competitive advantage. We have proven being capable building factories at green field locations. In China we are currently, successfully building cranes, pipelay towers as well as drilling equipment.”

In 2013, Huisman started the construction of their new Brazilian facility with a first pile in March 2014. Since then, phase 1 of the construction has been finalized, including a large production hall, work preparation and welding hall and office. Building activities for the next phase (painting hall, warehouse and test pedestal), are under construction, the company said in a press release.

The Brazilian Huisman production facility has already been awarded contracts for the delivery of six 65mt Lattice Boom Cranes and four 65mt Knuckleboom Cranes for Sete Brasil and cranes and pipe storage baskets for two 340mt Tiltable Pipelay Systems for Technip-DOF. Furthermore a contract for four anchor handling and towing winch packages was signed with Grupo CBO early this year.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
