Aker Solutions is investing $100 million in a new multi-purpose service site in Macaé for its drilling equipment business in Brazil. The 335,000m2 development – eight times bigger than the company’s current facility in nearby Rio das Ostras – will host full drilling riser production and maintenance services as well as well as indoor mechanical workshop space for riser and topside equipment.

The site, scheduled to be fully operational in early 2014, will also include a training centre with capacity for up to four of Aker Solutions’ state-of-the-art drilling simulators.
