The Enseada Indústria Naval asked IBAMA to renew an Installation License (LI) to complete works at the Paraguaçu shipyard, in Maragojipe (BA). Work was halted in 2015 due to the crisis in the shipbuilding and offshore sector, which began with the collapse of Sete Brasil’s rig program.
The works, which were to be completed one year after the start, are designed to prepare the shipyard to meet the demands of FPSO type vessels, DP2 type relief vessels and military vessels.
The company completed its judicial recovery process in November last year. The debt of the company was around R $ 900 million and was generated by the imbroglio around Sete Brazil. The shipyard had a contract to build six FPSOs. Of the six contracted, only two began to come out of the paper, Ondina, which has about 75% of the finished work, with a hull being made in Japan, and Pituba, with about 25% completion.
