Contracts won in the Brazilian market

Two new offshore support vessels owned by Navegação São Miguel and destined for long-term charter to Brazilian operator Petrobrás, will feature a suite of MacGregor offshore equipment.

As part of Cargotec's plans to further broaden its presence in Brazil, the company has recently won contracts that will see it supply a set of MacGregor offshore load handling and rescue handling equipment for two offshore support vessels under construction for Brazilian shipping company, Navegação São Miguel Ltda. The vessels have been ordered for an eight-year charter agreement with Petrobrás, which plans to operate them in the Campos Basin in Macaé, Rio de Janeiro.

For each vessel Cargotec will supply two types of rescue handling systems for handling small through to heavy fast rescue craft and a telescoping marine deck crane. All equipment is planned for delivery by the beginning of 2012 and is fully-certified in accordance with international regulations.
