Oceânica receives visit from Delf University of Technology Committee

Oceânica received last week, at its São Paulos` office, a committee composed by 30 Dutch master students from Delf University of Technology, in Rotterdam.
São Paulo, Santos, Rio de Janeiro, Parati and Angra dos Reis are cities on the route of those students and Oceânica was been chosen as a model of sector company. The Panamérica Study Trip also involved visits to the Institute of Technology Research of the São Paulo University (IPT), Santos Port and Petrobras, among other institutions. The study trip has started in Panamá where the students could explore more about peculiarities and technologies used on local naval projects.

Oceânica completed manouvering simulation for Barra do Riacho LNG terminal

At the request of Petrobras, Oceânica have completed many manouvering analysis for the new LNG terminal in Barra do Riacho (called TBR). The purpose was to evaluate if the planed dimensions for the channel and evolution area were appropriate to the features and flow of the vessel which will be handling the gas transportation in the area.

The New terminal will occupy 46 hectares and will be held together with Terminal Aquaviário de Barra do Riacho (called TABR), in Aracruz, ES.

Simulations took place at the Nautilus – Center of Ports and Oceanic Simulation and counted with port authorities members and captains from Espirito Santo Ports.

In total, more than 50 manouvers were performed on Full Mission Bridge Simulator, using fast time and real time tools, shared in 2 weekly campaigns.

The importance of this project, strengths even more the need of simulation as many situations as possible to warrant its viability: in total. Investments are estimated in 2,7 bi (Real) and natural gas daily production is estimated at about 14 million cubic meters .

Oceanic concludes agreement to supply Simulator CBO

Consolidating the experience of our project team and complementing the entries for CADFOR and ONIP, Oceanica is now enabled as a main supplier of Petrobras, the CRCC. Result of a work executed throughout 2011, the CRCC of Oceanica incorporates the following service specialties: Structural mobile steel projects, Shipbuilding projects, Technical-economic feasibility studies, Organization, Methods and Systems projects, Tankers ship Conversion projects in FPSO and FSO, Projects for Mobile Platforms-Semi Submersible, Installation analysis of subsea equipment, Anchor systems projects.
Along 2012, Oceanica the will include new specialties to increase the range of services provided to the largest oil company of Brazil.

Oceanica’s workshop about Simulation Solutions applied to Port Analysis and Maneuvers

With investment’s in Terminals and Ports increasing in Brazil, the need for specialized tools are necessary to analyze maneuver, to predict the ability to dock a given vessel in desired cradle. Oceanica already acts providing simulations in accelerated time, also called fast time, for major expansion projects and new terminals in the country, announced that it is working on improving your real time Simulator of maneuvers, so turns it on full mission Bridge configuration (Full Mission Bridge). 
Oceanica organized a seminar with companies about Simulation Solutions applied to Port Analysis and Maneuvers, strengthening contacts with customer and partners, held on 29 November in São Paulo, with the presence of Marin, Dutch laboratory partner in this project, and representatives of the VALE, the Navy of Brazil-CIAGA, HATCH, Wilson Sons and EMBRAPORT.

Oceânica concludes fast time maneveurs project

Last week Oceânica finished the maneuver project performed by fast time analysis to Concremat.

Critical environmental conditions were used in the maneuvers feasibility assessment of the CSN, Gerdau and Petrobras Supply and E & P terminals. The results are going to help to define the pier arrangement and tugboat number and power.

The project developed by Oceânica presented the expected result. “From the commitment from each one, we meet deadlines and the customer requirements. The result was great, we delivered a product with quality and therefore it was worth our dedication”, says Beatriz Burlamaqui, Concremat project manager.

The joint development of the terminal in Sepetiba is something that has been developed by the companies since 2009.
