Estaleiro Enseada do Paraguaçu

Keeping pace with the needs of the Brazilian maritime industry and the challenges posed for the nation’s engineering sector by the development of oil and gas production in the pre-salt region, Odebrecht is investing in the Estaleiro Enseada do Paraguaçu (EEP), a shipyard that focuses on building, consolidating, and repairing offshore units, including platforms, specialized ships, and drilling rigs.

EEP operates through two business units: Estaleiro Enseada do Paraguaçu, the shipyard with the same name as the company, located on the Paraguaçu River in Maragojipe, Bahia, and the Inhaúma Shipyard on Guanabara Bay, in the Caju district of Rio de Janeiro.

Shipbuilding services at the Inhaúma Shipyard in Rio de Janeiro, RJ: meeting the demands of the Brazilian maritime industry.

Highlights in 2012

The company signed two major contracts with Sete Brasil and Petrobras. The contract with Sete Brasil, for the construction of six drill ships, is valued at a total of USD 4.8 billion, and the Petrobras contract for the conversion of four VLCC ships into FPSOs is worth a total of USD 1.7 billion. Assembly services for the first units got underway in 2012 at the Inhaúma Shipyard.

EEP began construction of the shipyard on the Paraguaçu River, involving planned investments of BRL 2.6 billion (USD 1.4 billion). The facility is scheduled to start operations in 2014.
