The new contract will start in 3Q/4Q of 2019, OOS International said on Tuesday.

OOS Tiradentes, named after a national Brazilian hero who fought for independence, has been working in Brazil for Petrobras since its delivery and its current contact will end later this year.

“The new awarded contract is a result of excellent performance, competitive pricing, strong local support and contract management,” OOS stated.

The company also said: “OOS International and CIMC Raffles are delighted to further strengthen their long and successful relationship with Petrobras, a highly valued customer and partner in an important industry.”

The OOS Tiradentes flotel was built by China’s shipbuilder Yantai CIMC Raffles and delivered in February 2018.

The OOS Tiradentes is a self-propelled unit equipped with electrical driven cranes with a capacity up to 2x 60T and accommodation for 600 persons on board designed for maintenance and installation operations on worldwide oceans such as Brazil and the Gulf of Mexico.

This vessel has a dynamic positioning system and it offers access through the Marine Aluminum telescopic gangway connecting to the installation.
