InterMoor upgrades Brazilian marine base

InterMoor has added inspection and testing capabilities to its marine base at the Açu Superport in São João da Barra, northern Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

The company said the base now has a 1,000-ton test bed and can perform load and breaking test for chain, wire rope, and mooring accessories up to 800t SWL. The inspection, test, and certification capabilities also extend to cargo-handling material like cranes, hoists, rigging, water bags, and slings.

InterMoor’s Port Açu facility opened in June 2014. It is located on a 52,300-m2 site with a 90-m quayside, a 10-m operational draft and a back storage area of 580 m2. From the Açu marine base, InterMoor performs mooring services, equipment storage and maintenance, and vessel docking, supply, loading, and offloading.

Cleiver Moulin, managing director, InterMoor do Brasil, says, “The new testing equipment enables us to widen our offering to our customers in the oil and gas and cargo transportation industries. We are now delivering a new set of integrity services including inspection, nondestructive tests, repair, and maintenance for all types of mooring components and cargo handling.

“There currently are 43 Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessels (FPSO) offshore Brazil and our marine base at the Açu Superport is strategically placed to provide them with the necessary inspection, repair, and maintenance work for their mooring system.”
