Under the agreement signed with Prosafe, Petrobras will charter the Safe Eurus semi-submersible vessel for safety and maintenance support offshore Brazil.

The contract is expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2019 with a firm period commitment of three years. This will be the first work for the Safe Eurus. The total value of the contract is approximately $80 million.

Built by China’s COSCO, the Safe Eurus will be the third Prosafe vessel under a charter in Brazil, with sister vessel Safe Notos also on charter to Petrobras, and Safe Concordia on a charter with Japan’s MODEC.

The Safe Eurus, a Dynamically Positioned (DP3), harsh environment semi-submersible safety and maintenance support vessel, can accommodate up to 500 persons.

Jesper Kragh Andresen, CEO of Prosafe says: “Prosafe is proud to secure this contract to continue the strong partnership with Petrobras built over 8 years of Brazilian operations.”
