Maersk Supply Service said it will provide an integrated mooring lines life extension solution for Shell’s floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO) Fluminense, including project management, engineering, interface management and offshore execution off the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

With the offshore phase expected to commence in December, the project includes heading control of the FPSO, replacement of mooring lines, as well as installation and hook up of the new mooring components. Maersk Achiever, along with one to two Maersk L-class anchor handling tug supply vessels, will mobilize to Brazil following the completion of another mooring lines replacement project offshore West Africa.

Olivier Trouve, Maersk Supply Service Head of Integrated Solutions, said the ability to plan and execute the full range of scopes required for FPSO moorings maintenance, and supplying all vessels from a large in-house fleet, can help reduce risk and optimize operations for our customers.

“From the start of the engineering phase, we have set up a centralized project team together with our customer to ensure seamless alignment,” Trouve said.

Managing Director for Maersk Supply Service in Latin America Rafael Thome said he sees opportunity for growth in the South American country.

“Through our 40-year’s history in Brazil and ambitious focus on local content, Maersk Supply Service is determined to continue to play a significant role in the country. We believe our integrated solutions business, including our towing and mooring capabilities, offer fantastic opportunities for growth in the near future,” he said.
