ROV contract win in Brazil

SM Continental (SMC) has won a contract to provide ROV services to oil giant Petrobras in Brazil. The two-year contract, which started in April 2021, is worth $5 million.

SMC has worked closely with Petrobras since 1974 but recently established a team to provide remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) specifically to service this key customer’s needs.

Since SMC became part of the James Fisher group, the diving specialist has progressively expanded the services it offers, as well as the number and breadth of customers it serves, and now works with most of the major players in Brazil’s oil and gas sector. 177 experienced divers are currently deployed on operations undertaking a wide variety of tasks associated with the operation and maintenance of offshore assets.

‘These new services and growing client base mean the James Fisher group now has a well-established sub-sea services company in Brazil which can act as a catalyst for other group companies to enter the market here,’

says Latin America regional director, Richard Wilson.

SMC has also recently won its first contract to deliver rope access services to a wind-farm operator:

‘There are many wind projects under consideration in this region, so we anticipate this to be the first of many such projects for us in the future,’ adds Richard.
