Fugro Secures Petrobras Contract Extension in Brazil

Fugro has been awarded a further two-year contract by Petrobras to provide comprehensive inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) and pipeline inspection services in Brazil. 

The new award follows Fugro’s completion of an initial 12-month contract for the oil major, after taking delivery of the newbuild vessel Fugro Aquarius.

Built specifically for the Brazilian market by Wilson Sons shipyard in São Paulo, Fugro Aquarius is an 83-meter, DP-2 ROV support vessel.

With a deck area of 520 square meters, the vessel is permanently equipped with two Fugro-built 150HP 3,000-meter work class ROVs.

Andrew Seymour, Fugro’s manager for marine business in Brazil said, “As industry leader in ROV IRM, Fugro provides worldwide subsea inspection services in water depths up to 4,000 meters. This new contract strengthens our position in the Brazilian market, despite the challenging market conditions, and reinforces our ability to provide these services to clients such as Petrobras.”

The operations started in May 2017, the company noted.
