Fugro Wins Another IRM Contract with Petrobras in Brazil

Petrobras has awarded Fugro a 3-year contract for subsea inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) services in Brazil.

The contract is set to begin in Q4 2021 and will be accomplished from the Fugro Aquarius using two Fugro-built 3000 m work-class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). The award follows the successful completion of a previous 4-year contract for similar services aboard the same vessel.

Designed primarily for the Brazilian market, the 83 m long Fugro Aquarius boasts a diesel electric propulsion arrangement that reduces noise and carbon emissions, along with a redundant, dynamic positioning system that keeps the ship steady under a wide range of sea and wind conditions. During the previous contract, Fugro accomplished more than 20,000 hours of successful ROV operations for Petrobras, helping to unlock insights from Geo-data about the condition of existing assets and the surrounding environment for safe and efficient oil and gas operations.

Commenting on the new contract, Rogerio Carvalho, Country Manager of Fugro Brazil stated, “Fugro is very pleased to receive this latest award, which shows once again our commitment to client focus. Our proven delivery excellence, together with the fuel efficiency of the Fugro Aquarius, allowed us to put forth a highly competitive commercial offer meeting all technical requirements of the tender. We look forward to continuing our success with Petrobras on this new contract and to consolidating our position within the Brazilian IRM ROV market, which has nearly doubled in capacity over the last year.”
