Suretank has been active in Brazil for the past 24 months, designing and manufacturing offshore equipment for major international oil service and rental companies through a sub-contract agreement with an experienced Brazilian partner. This announcement sees Suretank Group take a majority ownership position in a newly formed business entity with the Brazilian partners.

The new venture will see the transfer of 70 existing highly trained and qualified employees into the new business ensuring seamless service to existing clients.

Suretank Latin America will continue to operate its Rio de Janeiro based sales and marketing office.

Suretank Latin America’s local Brazilian base allied to its ownership of the world’s largest library of DNV approvals means that the business is uniquely positioned to become Latin America’s preferred provider of offshore tanks and CCUs to clients in the offshore oil and gas industry.
