Petrobras PLSV Fleet
3 August 2012
The Brazilian state oil company Petrobras has awarded long term charters for a fleet of five new pipelay support vessels for delivery in 2014 to some of the major subsea construction operators. Maats has been contracted by each of these operators to supply pipe load-out and storage solutions for each of the new vessels. Maats is the sole supplier of such solutions for the new 2014 Petrobras deep-water pipelay fleet and these awards strengthen Maats position as the world leader in such systems.
The pipe storage solutions required comprise primarily a range of carousel based systems for installation below deck, but also include deck mounted reel-based systems. Maats’ scope of supply includes all deck layout equipment for each system including 30t load-out tensioners, over-boarding chutes, pathways etc.
