Aker Solutions opens new subsea plant in Brazil

Aker Solutions has opened its new subsea plant in Curitiba on April 19, 2016 to drive developments of one of the world’s most important offshore oil and gas areas.

The facility currently employs 850 employees and is dedicated to machining, welding, surface treatment, assembly and testing of Christmas trees and other subsea equipment. It will provide the first subsea control systems manufacturing capability in Brazil, enabling delivery of complete well systems that are placed on the seafloor.

The plant, located in the city of São José dos Pinhais, will double the company’s production capacity in the country. It is part of a global delivery model with subsea execution hubs in the Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe and will support customers both in and outside of Brazil. Aker Solutions is also upgrading its subsea services unit in Rio das Ostras to better meet customer demand.

Earlier this year, Aker secured a contract to provide maintenance and other services on its subsea equipment delivered to Petrobras in Brazil.
