Subsea 7 SA's i-Tech division has been awarded a contract by Petrobras worth about US$60 million.

The contract is for the provision of ROV’s and underwater positioning services on board the platform supply vessel (PSV) Far Saga, operating offshore Brazil, for a six year term, with options to extend for up to another six years.

i-Tech’s managing director, Bruce Masson, said: “We are pleased to be awarded this contract by Petrobras which further consolidates i-Tech’s position as the leading ROV and intervention tooling provider offshore Brazil.
