Berg Wins Brazil Order

Friday, July 09, 2010

Count Berg Propulsion as the latest marine equipment manufacturer to join the rush to Brazil, as the company reportedly has secured its first order in Brazil six months after opening its dedicated sales office in Rio de Janeiro. Three single screw bunker vessels ordered through shipyard Renave will be equipped with controllable pitch propellers and fixed pitch tunnel thrusters from Berg. On completion, the vessels will be delivered to client Delima and time chartered to Brazilian energy major Petrobras. Featuring an overall length of 71.6m, a molded breadth of 15m and a draft of 4.25m, these 2500 dwt vessels are destined to service Petrobras requirements for inland waterway transportation in Brazil when they are delivered in 2014.
