By Baird Maritime - February 18, 2020
Spanish engineering company Ghenova has been awarded a contract for the completion of construction on two unfinished patrol vessels for the Brazilian Navy.
The contract for work on Maracanã and Mangaratiba, the third and fourth vessels in the Macaé-class, has an estimated total value of BRL 6.4 million (US$1.5 million).
The work will be carried out by Ghenova’s Brazilian subsidiary for an expected duration of one year. There are also options to extend the work by an additional four years if necessary.
The Ghenova manager pointed out that the agreement is “a very important opportunity for the company”, since it will allow new hires with the Brazilian Navy. The expected duration of the contract is one year with the possibility of renewal for four.
“The contract is a landmark agreement, a kind of umbrella contract, which covers detailed engineering work for the construction, repairs and modernization of the naval naval assets,” said Cupello.
THE Ghenova presents a trajectory with several military vessel projects, being able to carry out all phases of the program. Source: time24.news
