Chouest Kicks Off B-Port Project in Brazil

Los Angeles-headquartered Edison Chouest Offshore has begun construction works on a logistics support base and naval repair shipyard for its own vessels at the Port of Açu, located in Sao Joao da Barra in northern Rio de Janeiro-RJ, Brazil.

In April 2014, Chouest  and Prumo Logistica signed the initial lease for the port property, recently amending the agreement to include a total area of 574,200 square meters, if all future contract options are exercised.Chouest Kicks Off  B-Port Project in Brazil

“We are already investing to meet the current demand of our international customers and new bids in the industry, and our unit at the Port of Açu is essential for such,” said Chouest Brazilian Director Ricardo Chagas.

Construction work has been underway for several months, and the expected start of operations will take place during the first half of 2015.

The new  facility will have ten covered slips, nine 25.2 m wide regular slips, each with two 25-ton overhead cranes, and one 38.4 m wide heavy lift slip with two 100-ton overhead cranes

Located in the south breakwater of Agu Port’s Terminal 2, B-Port will also feature a floating dry dock with a lifting capacity of 13,700 MT.
