Preserving and appreciating the natural, historical, cultural and social wealth of the regions where it operates is an integral part of the EEP Sustainability Policy. However, the main focus is on people and their relationships with their physical surroundings as well as their culture, beliefs and traditions, in addition to their interactions with the enterprise.
Watch EEP's sustainability video:
At Maragojipe in the Recôncavo Baiano region, social and environmental diversity and the strength of a culture rooted in Africa have inspired a special sustainability policy for this region, grounded on these aspects in an integrated manner ever since its initial planning stage.
With a business strategy steered by strict compliance with valid licenses and permits – and outstripping their requirements whenever possible – EEP is committed to leaving a permanent legacy for the regions where it operates.
To do so, it invests in ongoing dialogues with communities in its areas of influence, encouraging their active participation and thus building up relationship of trust and transparency with all its stakeholders and customers, based on the sustainable management of the shipyard and the integrated development of surrounding areas.
For three years, EEP conducted environmental, social and cultural studies of the areas around its enterprises mapping and designing actions that ensure positive social and environmental impacts, encouraging the local economy and its society while firming up long-term commitments to these areas and communities.
At the Inhaúma Shipyard, actions focused on sustainability are encompassed by the scope of the activities listed in the agreement signed with Petrobras, striving to comply with the conditions established in the environmental license. This densely populated area located on the banks of the Guanabara Bay is an area of relevant interest in terms of the historic and cultural heritage of the city of Rio de Janeiro.
Consequently, processes are handled in ways designed to prevent and mitigate any type of environmental impacts that might be caused by the activities of the shipyard, through operating procedures focused on solid wastes management and the treatment of waste gases and liquids.
Since the initial environmental licensing phase for its project at Maragojipe, EEP has been concerned with investing in initiatives that will mitigate the environmental impacts caused by its activities.
To do so, it has been conducting a series of technical studies over the past few years, headed by renowned specialists and addressing advanced environmental monitoring activities, assorted reforestation projects, as well as social and cultural surveys.
This enterprise is licensed by Brazilian Institute for the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (IBAMA), and is also overseen by other entities with jurisdiction over its territory and activities: the Environment Institute (IMA), the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation (ICMBio), the Palmares Cultural Foundation and the National Artistic and Historical Heritage Institute (IPHAN).

In parallel, EEP representatives attend many public hearings and community meetings in order to present the enterprise, discussing and signing agreements with local communities.
The timing of the actions for each environmental project or program complies with the schedule established in the Basic Environment Plan approved by IBAMA and other agreements.
At the Estaleiro Inhaúma shipyard, a wide variety of steps were taken in order to avoid damages that might cause impacts on the environment and nearby communities, either directly or indirectly. To do so, accident simulations are held, followed by critical analyses, for all scenarios (fire, accidents, evacuation etc).
An Individual Emergency Plan (PEI) was approved, which is linked to the Emergency Response Plan (PAE), defining immediate steps to be taken in order to control and mitigate accidents involving oil spills during drydock operations.
Well-structured to address the possibility of damages, EEP works with the following plans and programs:
Resources have been invested in regular training sessions that provide workers with the guidelines needed for them to handle waste materials, whether hazardous or not, in addition to defining procedures for their repurposing, tacking and proper disposal.
Additionally, gas emissions from the installed machinery are being controlled, as well as the gases emitted by vehicles circulating through the shipyard plant, in order to reduce them to environmentally safe levels.
EEP has strong social commitments to the regions where it operates, based on identifying the vocations and needs of each area around its enterprises, allocating investments that ensure the social impacts of its activities are always positive, with local residents being the top-priority focus of its attention.
Its corporate philosophy strives to underpin guidelines ensuring that as many workers as possible are hired locally, with outreach projects making the best possible use of existing vocations, with potential and strategic partners, seeking outcomes that put down firm roots over the medium and long terms, compliant with integrated local development concepts.
Its field activities are strategically focused on generating jobs and work for local residents, imbued with the mission of transferring knowledge in order to foster social empowerment, with the self-sufficiency of these projects avoiding an assisting stance.
The construction of its shipyard in Bahia State will generate 3,000 direct jobs, reaching 5,000 positions after the start-up of operations by the shipyard, in addition to 10,000 indirect jobs. Top priority will be assigned to training and hiring local workers, particularly from the regions around Maragojipe and other neighboring municipalities.
To do so, partnership agreements are being signed with highly respected vocational training programs, including Brazil’s Oil and Natural Gas Mobilization Program (PROMINP) run by Petrobras and the ACREDITAR program run by the Construtora Odebrecht construction company. The purpose is to introduce vocational training programs for the civil construction and shipbuilding segments in this region.
Along the same lines, investments were allocated to social and environmental actions at Inhaúma, in compliance with the requirements established in the agreement with the client, Petrobras, focused on the internal public as well as neighboring communities in the Caju region, through the adoption of social accountability practices that reflect ways of building up sustainable businesses, establishing a permanent channel of communication open to local society for the collective construction of proposals designed to minimize the identified problems.
An estimated 5,000 direct jobs will be generated, together with a further 1,000 indirect positions as activities peak.

Enseada Indústria Naval received on Monday (02/24) its first ship, marking the operational phase of the Paraguaçu Unit, located in Maragojipe (Bahia state). The vessel left Mokpo port on January 19th with the first part of the Goliath crane, acquired from the worldwide company Konecranes Finland Corporate, to be delivered in ten shipments (two large scale, the largest scheduled for February 24), coming from Finland , Korea and China. The equipment will be fully assembled in August 2014 and will be the tallest in Brazil, with 150 meters, equivalent to a 50-story building.
The Goliath is a seven-ton portico like equipment capable of lifting up to 1,800 tons. Capable of assembling megablocks, it will allow erecting the drilling tower of the drilling rigs in a single move. The equipment will operate together with a jib crane on rails made by the same company. The most important aspect is the operational synergy between the cranes, which have the same basic technology, affording greater safety and productivity.
For Silvio Zen, Shipyard Construction Director at Paraguaçu Unit, the vessel's arrival marks the completion of the civil works of Pier I. "The construction works of Paraguaçu Unit are over 50% complete and the unit is scheduled to be inaugurated in March 2015. However, we are already operating. We have already started the steel-plate cutting required to build the drilling rigs," says Zen. Pier I has a total area of 5.2 thousand square meters and capacity to dock ships up to 210 meters long.
With 7,200 workers - 70% of which are from Bahia - and 55% of the works completed, the shipyard that Enseada is building in Bahia has placed the city among the largest development centers in Brazil, according to a report in Veja magazine. The magazine quotes 10 municipalities that are leading the creation of jobs with salaries above R$ 5,000, and Maragojipe and Ipojuca (PE) are the only cities in the Northeast region.

Enseada Indústria Naval (Enseada Shipbuilding) completed an important step in the process of building the Paraguaçu Unit. After a year and nine months, the civil works of Pier 1 were completed, bringing a new scenario for the enterprise, enabling it to receive ships. With a total area of 5.2 thousand square meters, the pier has capacity to dock vessels up to 210 meters long.
The first construction phase, namely the infrastructure, comprised thrusting staves, excavation, wall plate making and concreting. The second phase, namely the superstructure, consisted of on-site assembly of pre-casts, wall plates and concreting. To enable the performance of these two cycles, 320 employees worked in these activities.
For Silvio Zen, Shipyard Construction Director at Paraguaçu Unit, the construction of Pier 1 was a challenge achieved with the help of the entire team. "All were very committed, allowing us to anticipate the completion of the works by 20 days. We hope to achieve similar results with Piers 2 and 3, expected to be finalized in October and November this year, respectively", said the executive.
Having the first pier ready enables receiving ships with equipment for unloading, thereby lowering costs and transportation time.
Investment and operation phase
The works at Paraguçu Unit are 50% complete, expected to be inaugurated in March 2015. However, it is already in operation phase, building the drilling rigs to explore the pre-salt deposits.
Enseada is formed by Odebrecht, OAS, UTC and KHI (Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd.) with investments of around R$ 2.6 billion in the Reconcavo Baiano. Its contract portfolio includes, in Bahia, manufacturing six drilling rigs for Sete Brasil, and in Rio de Janeiro, the conversion of four VLCCs ship hulls into FPSOs for Petrobras.
Enseada's headquarters are located in the municipality of Maragojipe (BA), with an area of 1.6 million square meters, 400,000 of which are intended for environmental preservation. When operating at full capacity, Enseada will be capable of processing up to 36,000 tons of steel a year working on a single-shift, thus providing a broad production margin, building highly specialized ships that can be manufactured simultaneously.

Courage. That was the word chosen by the General Coordinator of the Nuclear Submarine Development Program, Fleet Admiral Gilberto Max Roffé Hirschfeld. He used it to describe the establishment of the shipyard Enseada is building (Paraguaçu Unit), with the challenges that accompany such a big venture.
He was part of an important group representing the Brazilian Navy that visited Paraguaçu Unit’s construction site on Friday, January 31st Monteiro Dias; Rear Admiral Newton Costa Neto; Captain of Sea and War (‘Full Captain’) Edgar Barbosa; and Corvette Captain (‘Lieutenant Commander’) Carla de Mello. Joining them were Fábio Gandolfo, Managing Director of Odebrecht; Sérgio Cunha, of the Baía de Sepetiba Consortium; Fernando Barbosa, Shipyard of Enseada; Humberto Rangel, Director of Institutional Relations and Sustainability; and Silvio Zen, Director of Shipyard Construction – amongst other executives.
“We were very impressed with the modernity and professionalism of everything we saw. It’s not a surprise to encounter the managerial ability and production capacity of this company, given that we’re already familiar with the grandeur of what they’re doing at Itaguaí, in Rio de Janeiro,” said the Fleet Admiral, referring to the Submarine, Shipyard and Naval Base Development Project (Prosub-EBN). According to him, the technology involved demands attention. “It’s very modern, and we’re very happy with the idea of replicating part of what we’ve done in Rio, here in Bahia.”
The Navy expects to expand over the next three years, acquiring and modernizing ships, and increasing the size of the fleet. “The Paraguaçu Unit has everything we’re looking for, in terms of the right conditions for building ships. Our decision will only depend on its capacity to compete with other shipyards in Brazil,” the Fleet Admiral emphasized.
For Fábio Gandolfo, it was a great pleasure to host the Brazilian Navy and introduce them to the modern facilities at Paraguaçu Unit. “We’re taking part in a process of regeneration in Brazil’s maritime industry. We’re a contributor. It’s made possible by the pre-salt discoveries, and it’s growing because of the military sector. Today we’re hosting the leaders of a program that uses cutting edge technology. Prosub-EBN, developed by Odebrecht in Itaguaí, provided some helpful lessons that Enseada is now applying. In this way Enseada can move forward to opening new markets, including those in military ships,” said Odebrecht’s Managing Director.

With the arrival of the Estaleiro Enseada do Paraguaçu Shipyard – EEP, residents in Salinas da Margarida have gained a strong ally in the combat of local unemployment. Since the beginning of the construction, nearly 1,000 new jobs have been generated for residents of the city and surrounding regions thanks to efforts by the Enseada do Paraguaçu Consortium, responsible for building the new shipyard. Investments have been made in qualifying specialized labor through the Acreditar Program and partnerships celebrated with Sebrae and Prominp whose objective is to increase the number of qualified professionals who will become future candidates to work in the shipyard after its completion, forecasted for March 2015.
Together with the State Government of Bahia, the EEP developed Directory Plans for the municipalities located in the area of influence of the shipyard. Residents in the surrounding areas have already been benefited thanks to investments in various social areas such as health, education, new sanitation systems and waste management processes.
A series of strategic actions have been carried out in Salinas such as the R$200,000.00 investment made for the recovery of the Barra do Paraguaçu Pier and sponsorship of the local Marisco Festival programmed for the end of December of this year. Mention must also be made of the First Cultural and Art Encounter by the Friends of Capoarte and the mobilization of the community to form a civil brigade programmed to begin activities in January of 2014. Children's Day festivities in Salinas included a series of health-oriented actions called “Everything for a Smile” providing local residents with blood pressure and blood sugar tests and checkups, physiotherapy actions and oral hygiene examinations, which included the distribution of toothbrush and toothpaste kits and the application of Fluorine.
The city has also been included in the Community Environmental Education Program (PEAC), to encourage residents to recycle wastes and preserve the region’s ecological patrimony. As part of the EEP Sustainability Policy, a licensed company that specializes in this waste disposal work is transferring residues generated during the construction of the shipyard to a landfill project in Santo Antônio de Jesus.
