Suretank manufactures largest offshore container for Brazil

Suretank has manufactured Brazil's largest offshore container for leading trading company  CISA Trading S/A.

Commissioned by Brazilian energy giant, Petrobas, the units were manufactured at our Latin America’s state of the art facilities in Caxias do Sul.

Following extensive discussions with the customer, two separate sizes were produced with six units measuring in at 4.3 x 4.3 x 4.5m and eleven units at 4.3 x4.3 x 3.5m, and all certified to DNV 2.7.3.

Offshore cargo carrying units of this scale have never been manufactured in Brazil before and it is fitting that Suretank have pioneered the approach and succeeded in this engineering feat. We work closely with CISA´s engineers to help develop solutions that suit their specific requirements and this has been one of the most stimulating and exciting projects in the history of Suretank Latin America.  

The containers have been collectively named, ‘Mother’s Heart’, a title that the team felt emphasised the effort invested in the project and, from an engineering perspective, the sizeable capacities of the containers.

Once the CCU’s were completed, the focus shifted from engineering expertise to logistical competence, with special transport required for the delivery of the containers.  Units of this size can bring challenges from a handling perspective, but with the support of logistics specialists Flecha de Prata the units successfully made the massive 1600km trek from Caxias to Macaé, all within the boundaries of Brazil."
