Safe Eurus flotel scores maiden contract in Brazil
Brazilian oil firm Petrobras will hire Prosafe’s offshore accommodation unit the Safe Eurus.
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.”
