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.

Oceânica closes the 100th project!

100 Projetos OceânicaOceânica has closed its hundredth project this month. And to reach that number, we have used high technology resources, different processes, and the trust of many customers and the collaboration of top professionals. Customers who became partners and employees who became friends.

We are proud to believe that high-tech projects could be implemented in Brazil, not only for Brazilians but also for foreigners, exporting our high level knowledge, so necessary in these times of technological challenges such as, for example, the pre-salt .

We expanded our job by providing a complete range of offshore services, with structural calculations, hydrodynamic, positioning and Subsea.

Furthermore we have extended our work to the growing naval sector and most recently, we have initiated the supply of nautical services, with analysis of maneuver for ports and terminals.

We thank everyone who supported us so far, and hopefully soon announce our 200th project!

The simulator Maneuver Portable is now available in Brazil

The portable simulator maneuversThe portable simulator maneuvers is already operating at Oceânica office located in São Paulo.

The equipment, result of the partnership between Oceânica and MARIN, aims to predict and analyze the various maneuvers a vessel in real time at ports, terminals and offshore operations.

Furthermore, the simulator can also be used for staff training, for example, a crew or pilots.

This equipment complements the services already available at Oceânica to the port and terminals, fields such as scaling of tugs evaluations and fast time analysis.

Schedule a visit to our facilities and know more about our range of services.

Oceânica will supply one more Project to GoM

Oceânica has been chosen one more time by Petrobras America to continue with the studies for offloading operations of the BW Pioneer platform located in the Cascade-Chinook basin, at Gulf of Mexico. The partnership with Petrobras America comes since 2007, when Oceânica performed a initial offloading study for the same FPSO. In this phase 2, numerical simulations will be performed to support the definition of the safety limits of oil transfer operations.

According to Daniel Cueva, Oceânica’s director, the new project comes to consolidate the partnership between the company and Petrobras America, besides its international presence.

Oceânica develops 1st Project to Colombia

The project was requested by COTECMAR which is a Colombian corporation focused on the development of the naval and maritime industry. Cotecmar is in charge of the preliminaries studies of a new coastal patrol vessel to the Colombian Nave. The main challenge is to develop the lines and shape of a 40 meters vessel that is able to present a good performance on the Caribbean Sea, which forms the north coast of Colombia.

Oceânica will participate on the project developing three different analyses: powering, seakeeping and maneuvering. Searching for a very high precision in the results, Oceânica will count on MARIN, Dutch institute that is worldwide recognized by its researches, resources and experimental studies for maritime systems and the creator of the softwares which will be used for the calculations, such as: DESP, Shipmo and Sursim.

The project might last around 2 to 3 months and it will also count with an extra support by the Oceânica’s directors who will be given a quick course in Colombia about the theoretical basis, analysis and interpretation of the project’s results.
