Brazilship/Scanbrasil Offshore Department
Our department grew based on our local knowledge as ship-brokers, assisting clients in short- and long-term chartering contracts, shipbuilding consultancy, sale & purchase, project development, shipping logistics and by making tailor-made market reports.
We provide guidance in meeting the challenges in the Brazilian Offshore Sector; understanding contract structures, regulatory aspects; and in finding the most suitable Brazilian Shipping company to support operations.
Our staff consists of twelve dedicated persons, including senior-partners – Odd, Harald and Bjorn. This team has a vast experience and background, ranging from offshore field work and naval architecture to economy and engineering. It includes native Norwegian and Portuguese speaking individuals.
Our department’s primary target is to help the offshore operators in finding suitable solutions for any requirement, as well as predicting opportunities for ship-owners. As so, we continuously survey the offshore market to keep track on changes, and to foresee possible options and future enquiries.
For us, the fixing of a vessel is only a part of the job; we value a good market deal by sharing our knowledge and by guiding operators and ship-owners in all parts of the tendering processes. We follow the vessels from the moment they are fixed and delivered to charterer; during the contractual work scope; and up to its completion.
