As part of its third Fleet Renewal Plan for offshore support vessels, Petrobras signed contracts for 23 new support vessels on Thursday. The units, type PSV 4500 and OSRV 750, to be built in Brazil fulfil 60% of the local content requirements.
This was the fourth round of the third Fleet Renewal Plan. In the fifth round in July this year, Petrobras is expected to go to the market for another 24 offshore support vessels. This will fulfil the 2014 contracting target of 146 vessels to be built in Brazil, as planned in the third Renewal Plan Fleet for offshore support vessels.
