Enseada Indústria Naval completed the installation of the first outfitting supports of the mega-blocks for drillship Ondina. Carried-out at São Roque Unit, this milestone activity comprises the installation of the supports for the installation of electric trays, HVAX ducts (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) and pipes.
For engineer Denilson Romão, from the area responsible for the installations, this activity is a milestone in the implementation of Kawasaki technology at São Roque Unit. "With the technology and productivity levels refined especially by the Japanese, we installed the outfittings more safely, in less time and without having to mount any scaffoldings," he defined.
Kawasaki's construction methodology learnt through the TTA (Technology Transfer Agreement), allows assembling the outfittings in the blocks phase, increasing productivity, avoiding under-head welds, reducing the risk of accidents and increasing the quality of the final product.
According to Romão, the mega-blocks are built in the "upside-down" position, i.e., with the roof inverted downwards, to afford greater safety. The mega-blocks are only inverted and placed in the correct position after the service is done. After the outfittings are installed, the mega-blocks go to the inspection, edification and testing phase.
The importance of the megablock
The construction of a ship begins by cutting the sheets and mounting the panels that form the blocks, which once united, form the mega-blocks. Once each megablock is completed, the construction proceeds like a mounting game. The mega-blocks are erected and aligned with cranes and are welded together and equipped with the outfittings.

"As long as God gives me life, I will be participating in the Barquinha. I have even been invited to do this year's tradition." The enthusiastic statement was made by Benedita de Sousa, 75 years old, better known as D. Ditinha, during the launching ceremony of the Barquinha video and delivery of the "Boi Janeiro" made by Enseada Indústria Naval representatives.
The barquinha is a traditional event at Enseada do Paraguaçu, held for over 100 years on New Year's Eve, when the community thanks and renews its requests to the Sea Queen and Nossa Senhora do Rosário. The video exhibition occurred on Thursday (10), at the Association of Enseada do Paraguaçu Residents, when 500 DVD copies were distributed.
Several people who live in the region, as Valdete dos Santos, 80 years old, attended the gathering. "The community and we sambadeiras feel very happy. I am root of this floor. I participate and approve whatever is for the good of our tradition," she affirmed.
With eyes full of emotion, the residents watched the video and approved the the company's initiative. "This was a gift from God. With this work, we gain more visibility to get support for our initiatives," declared Alexsandra Rosária, former treasurer of the Barquinha, who has already been in charge of raising funds to perform this cultural tradition present at Enseada do Paraguaçu for over 100 years.
Sandra Costa, Social Responsibility coordinator of the enterprise, highlighted the company's commitment to help build the future, while dedicating special attention to the preservation of the region's cultural and intangible wealth. "What's happening here is another milestone of the respectful relationship that exists between the Shipyard and the community."
The occasion was one of celebration, gratitude and pride. The Boi Janeiro, another tradition using the image of a Bull, made in two weeks by Rodrigo Siqueira from the company Brasil com Artes, was delivered to residents. Soon after, backed by Tom Barreto's music, the samba-de-roda and roots, shown by the group "Filhos de Enseada", invaded the silence of this typical maroon site on the banks of Paraguaçu river, bringing joy to the celebration.

The president of Enseada Indústria Naval, Fernando Barbosa, attended the Rio Conferences Oil & Gas event held on July 03 at the Museu de Arte do Rio de Janeiro (MAR), in Rio de Janeiro. The executive’s presence occurred in the Shipbuilding table, along with Luis de Mattos (vice-president of Sobena), Paul Alonso (advisor to the president of Petrobras) and Antônio Müller (Chairman of ABEMI, CEO of Tridimensional), mediated by André Pompeo (BNDES Oil & Gas supply chain manager), making an overview of the industry through a process of revitalization, capacity and new view of business.
The first part of the event emphasized productivity and competitiveness. Fernando Barbosa made considerations on labor qualification, supply chain, technology and engineering involved in the process, besides mentioning the progress of Enseada's operations at its two units (Paraguaçu and Inhaúma).
Paulo talked about the challenges in planning and management, personnel capability and integration between the supply chains. Luis pointed out the need to enter the global market, capable of leveraging the oil and gas industry and the importance of intelligence in the project. Antônio highlighted Abemi's participation in the industry over many years and the importance of local content, where the focus should be on productivity with safety.
The second part of the event addressed specialization and local content. Fernando Barbosa pointed out the importance of strengthening the local content and project engineering in Brazil. He also noted that the area is promising, the country has several shipyards in operation, many investments are being made and that the cutting-edge technology being attracted has come to meet the market's demands.
Paulo said that with the industry's boom, the shipyards will know what paths to follow and that attracting foreign suppliers for partnerships with national suppliers is part of the process and will help a lot. Luis mentioned that the national industry’s challenge on the theme is that not all the sectors involve local content, whereas Antonio expressed his concern regarding the lack of predictability of new auctions to be held in the shipbuilding industry and about tax incentives for national companies so that the local content becomes stronger and more competitive.
Investments in the industry in Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro state will receive investments of around R$235.6 billion between 2014 and 2016, equivalent to 11.4% more than in the previous two years. Most of these funds (60.7%) will be allocated to the oil and gas industry for which investments of around R$ 143 billion are expected according to the study "Decisão Rio 2014 -2016" made by FIRJAN. The shipbuilding industry will have R$ 7.4 billion of investments planned for building new vessels, many of which are focused on the oil and gas industry itself.
