Last week, Offshore Energy Today reported that the “Consórcio Tomé Ferrostaal” (CTF), a joint venture of Ferrostaal and Rheinmetall, and the Brazilian company Tomé Engenharia handed over two modules for the first of a series of six FPSO vessels to an international consortium led by Petrobras.

The total order is worth today approximately $950 million and is part of Petrobras’s long-term investment programme for the Brazilian Government to open up the discovered “Tupi” offshore oil and gas field off the Southeast coast of Brazil, starting in 2016.

As part of the project the CTF consortium has built a new construction yard with its own workshops and production facilities at the port of Maceio located in the Northeast part of Brazil.

There, CTF consortium is responsible for the construction of the modules including engineering, procurement, manufacturing and assembling of the modules for the approximately 300-metre-long ships. Presently, CTF has around 2,700 local workers at the site.

Following delivery of the first FPSO modules, work on the following ships takes place in parallel on the site that covers over 500,000 square metres of land and water.

The sixth and final module package is scheduled for delivery by 2016.
