For a number of years, Blue Water Shipping has handled all logistics for SBM Offshore’s new projects – a world leader in floating production and mooring systems – in connection with the construction of several FPSOs such as «Cidade de Paraty» and «Cidade de Ilhabela». Now, Blue Water has signed a new contract including transport of spare parts and equipment for FPSO «Cidade de Ilhabela» during the future production phase. The majority of the cargo will be transported by ocean, moving mainly from the UK and USA.
«We are pleased to continue our good cooperation with SBM Offshore on these exciting projects. Together, we have developed our relationship and our competences for handling complex projects like these. We believe that our knowledge about SBM Offshore and their needs in combination with our global setup is the key to continuing our partnership to the benefit of both companies», says Leonardo Lima, General Manager in Blue Water Rio.
Right now, Blue Water is also handling the logistics in connection with the construction of «Cidade de Maricá» and «Cidade de Saquarema». In July, Blue Water was also awarded transports in connection with the demobilisation of the FPSO «Brazil» which includes transporting the parts to all corners of the world. These shipments are handled in close cooperation between Blue Water’s offices in Rio de Janeiro and Amsterdam.
