Dutch offshore services provider OOS International and Chinese yard CIMC Raffles announced in a joint press release that they have been awarded a 5-year contract for the flotel OOS Tiradentes by Petrobras.
The new contract will start Q3/Q4 of 2019, it said. The OOS Tiradentes flotel was built by China’s shipbuilder Yantai CIMC Raffles and delivered in February 2018.
OOS Tiradentes, named after a national Brazilian hero who fought for independence, is successfully working in Brazil for Petrobras and her current contact will end later this year.
The new awarded contract is a result of excellent performance, competitive pricing, strong local support and contract management.
OOS International and CIMC Raffles are delighted to further strengthen their long and successful relationship with Petrobras, a highly valued customer and partner in an important industry.
The OOS Tiradentes is a self-propelled unit equipped with electrical driven cranes with a capacity up to 2x 60T and accommodation for 600 persons on board designed for maintenance and installation operations.
