Mechanical services specialist, EnerMech Ltd, has completed its first project in Brazil on behalf of Technip, a world leader in the fields of project management, engineering and construction or the oil and gas industry.
Aberdeen-based EnerMech performed a maintenance and inspection programme on three pedestal cranes onboard Technip’s Sunrise 2000 flexible pipe-lay vessel while it was docked in Rio de Janeiro.
The Sunrise 2000 is a sophisticated deepwater pipe-lay vessel with the ability to lay flexible flowlines and umbilicals simultaneously in water depths of up to 2000 metres. The vessel is on long term charter, working offshore Brazil.
The contract, which was worth a six figure sum, represents a breakthrough in the South American cranes and maintenance market for EnerMech.
Graeme Massie, EnerMech’s cranes & lifting manager, said: “Working closely with a local contractor in Brazil we were able to demonstrate the flexible and professional approach we employ in all our crane maintenance work. The cranes were crucial to the completion of a wider overhaul and was a critical path item in the project.
“It is the first time we have worked with Technip in this part of the world and we hope it signals the start of an ongoing business relationship in South America and other regional hubs.”
