Jurong Shipyard Celebrates Ground-breaking of New Yard Facility in Brazil
 
Jurong Shipyard marked an important milestone in its growth and expansion strategy on December 19 with the ground-breaking of Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz, the Group’s first overseas Integrated New Yard Facility in the state of Espirito Santo, Brazil.

The construction and development of Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz, a wholly-owned, locally-incorporated shipyard, is in line with Sembcorp Marine’s global hub strategy to strengthen its foothold in Brazil, which has been selected as a strategic growth hub.

The ground-breaking ceremony was officiated by the Governor of Espirito Santo, His Excellency Renato Casagrande, and witnessed by Goh Geok Ling, Chairman of Sembcorp Marine, as well as Directors Tan Sri Mohd Hassan Marican, Lim Ah Doo and Ron Foo.

Wong Weng Sun, President & CEO of Sembcorp Marine and Managing Director of Jurong Shipyard, who was also present at the ground-breaking ceremony, said, “We are here at the right place and right time. The ground-breaking for the development of Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz will provide a clear signal to the Brazilian Oil and Gas market that Sembcorp Marine is completely committed to continue its services to them. To date, we have successfully completed a total of 18 oil and gas exploration, production and storage platforms for Brazilian oilfields. These platforms contribute approximately half of Brazil's daily oil output.”

Located close to the rich oil and gas Basin of Espirito Santo, one of Brazil's giant pre-salt reservoirs, Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz is situated on an 82.5-hectare site with 1.6 km of coastline. The integrated shipyard will be developed over a period of three years, with full completion scheduled for end 2014.

Planned facilities include a 120 x 380-metre dry-dock, a one-kilometre berthing quay as well as ancillary piping facilities and steel fabrication workshops. Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz will have capabilities to undertake construction of drill-ships, semi-submersible and jack-up rigs, platforms, supply vessels, the integration of FPSOs and topside modules fabrication, in addition to the traditional activities of drilling rig repairs, ship repairs and modification / upgrade works.
