OceanPact to enter three contracts with Forship

Rio de Janeiro, April 7, 2016 - Consultancy, project monitoring and HMSWeb aim to ensure delivery of OSRV-type offshore support vessel within schedule.

Shipowners OceanPact Serviços Marítimos S.A. hired Forship Group's consultancy services for performing a status and feasibility assessment regarding the delivery of support ship Fernando de Noronha, currently being built at Wilson Sons Shipyard in Guaruja (SP), within schedule.

The OSRV-type vessel (Oil Spill Recovery Vessel) is designed for offshore support in oil scumming activities in case of spill. One of OceanPact activities, a Brazilian company specialized in the management and response to environmental emergencies and the development and implementation of solutions for the marine and coastal environment, particularly for naval, ports, fishery and oil & gas industries.

"This contract, executed in December 2015, adds a further expert advice service provided by Forship to naval building and offshore market, both shipyards and shipowners," says project manager Antonio Prates.

The Forship-provided assessment was developed by technicians José Roberto Gonçalves da Rocha and Mauricio Guimarães after a visit to Wilson Sons and after reviewing the documentation received from the shipyard. Including detailed information about both the planning and the progress of the work, resources allocated by the shipyard and potential bottlenecks, the final report provided recommendations to ensure the success of the enterprise and made projections regarding the delivery of the vessel in three different scenarios - Optimistic, Conservative and Pessimistic.

New demands

In light of these results, OceanPact entered in January this year another contract with Forship, this time for field monitoring of final works at the shipyard.

Forship Commissioning Coordinator, Márcio Sá Leitão, will act at the shipyard floor together with  OceanPact Supervisory Group, up to the launch, seaworthiness test and final delivery of the vessel. He will rely on remote engineering support provided by Forship central office  in Rio de Janeiro (RJ).

With the purpose of optimizing the management of pending construction and commissioning issues, the company also hired the HMSWeb so as to employ in the project the technological tool created by Forship, which has become a market reference.
