Petrobras awards contract for 23 support vesselsNews // April 22, 2013
Petrobras has signed contracts for 23 offshore support vessels, as part of the 3rd Fleet Renewal Plan.
The PSV 4500s and OSRV 750s fulfil 60 per cent local content requirements and will be built in Brazil. Petrobras said prices presented "were competitive, given expected metrics and budgets."
This was the 4th Round of the Fleet Renewal Plan. In July this year, Petrobras will go to the market for another 24 offshore support vessels (the 5th Round), thus fulfilling the 2014 contracting target of 146 vessels to be built in Brazil, as planned in the 3rd Renewal Plan.
