The platform supply vessel 'CBO Atlantico' is delivered. She is built in Brazil, and fitted with the latest Cargomaxx system. The vessel was constructed at Estaleiro Alianca Shipyard in Rio de Janeiro, for shipowner CBO (Companhia Brasileira de Offshore).
When CBO in 2010 and 2011 decided to order PSV's for Petrobras’ oil rigs support activities outside Brazil, their demands were such: The ships had to adapt to more and more complex operations and bring with them new technologies to provide quality services, ensure safety and protect sensitive marine environments. Their final decision was to order two small vessels (PX106) and four large vessels (PX105). The vessels comply with Petrobras’ PSV3000 and PSV4500 tenders, and are designed for effective and flexible transportation of bulk and general cargo to installations offshore.
‘CBO Atlântico’ measures 76.3 m (length overall) by 16 m (breadth), and the depth to main deck is 7.5 m. The cargo deck area is 660 m2. Three of the tanks are flexible tanks of the Cargomax system. CBO Atlântico’ complies with the CLEAN notation from Det Norske Veritas.
"The cooperation with both Estaleiro Alianca, CBO and Ulstein has been extremely well. We are very pleased with the finish and quality of the end product," says Project Manager at Cargomaxx, Mr. Karel de Kan.
CBO Atlântico left the yard on 2 February and has entered into an eight-year contract with Brazilian state oil company Petrobras.
