Allseas, a Swiss-headquartered offshore installation and construction company, has hired four large platform supply vessels from Brazil’s Bravante company.
According to VesselsValue, Allseas has hired platform supply vessels Bravante 5, Bravante 6, Bravante 7, Bravante 8 for a period of four months each, with options to extend those charters.
The charters were fixed on September 30 with the starting date set for November 1, 2016. All four vessels were built by Eastern Shipbuilding in Florida, USA.
Offshore Energy Today has reached out to Allseas, seeking more info on the contracts. The company did not reply at the time of publication. We will update the article if and when we get a response.
In the meantime, Brazilian sources say the charter is for the support of Allseas’ pipeline installation activities at the Rota 3 (Route 3) project.
Allseas has been hired by Petrobras for the engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning of a 298-km gas pipeline connecting the Comperj refinery near Rio de Janeiro with the Santos Basin offshore Brazil.
Allseas is using its Calamity Jane and Solitaire offshore construction and pipelaying vessels for the project.
