FPSO Cidade de Ilhabela Arrives in Brasa Yard (Brazil)

first_img Print  Close zoom The SBM Offshore vessel berthed safely at the Niteroi-Rio based Brasa yard on Sunday 12th January 2014. She had arrived in Brazilian waters in time for the New Year following her 10,625 Nm (19,678 Km) voyage from China.Integration of the bare hull and topsides will commence at Brasa – a joint venture construction shipyard between SBM Offshore and Synergy – where 10 of the vessel’s 18 modules have been built. “The yard has been up and running since July 2012 and Ilhabela is the yard’s first project with ten modules weighing a total of about 12,500 tonnes being built here” says Project Manager Martijn Kleijn.Cidade de Ilhabela is the first FPSO to be integrated at Brasa’s quay number two. Three additional modules were constructed and delivered by EBSE, a Rio yard that SBM works closely with as part of its development of solid local content solutions.Once in operation FPSO Cidade de Ilhabela will be SBM’s largest FPSO with a total of 22,000 tonnes in topsides. She is the company’s second vessel in the Generation 3 model, engineered to the specifications of the pre-salt fields offshore Brazil. The first is FPSO Cidade de Paraty which achieved first oil in June 2013. The next pair of SBM’s Generation 3 FPSOs under way are FPSOs Cidade de Maricá and Cidade de Saquarema also for offshore Brazil.“The arrival of FPSO Cidade de Ilhabela to Brazil represents a newsworthy double milestone for SBM Offshore. Firstly the success of SBM’s global project management of her conversion at the CXG yard in China. Secondly as joint venture partners with Synergy in Brasa shipyard we are very proud to welcome her to the quayside for the final integration of ten of her 18 modules, which were built here at Brasa in Niteroi, Rio,” Philippe Levy, Country Director Brazil.Conversion work on the hull was completed in October 2013 in China and she set sail in November for Brasa shipyard.

Sailor killed wife and sank catamaran to inherit estate and end marital

Prosecutor Benjamin Greenberg asked a Florida judge to admit into evidence conversations with loved ones where Ms Hellmann is said to have discussed rows over a mooted move to Australia, their dire finances and the raising of their daughter.He argued they show the pair were “consistently” rowing, adding: “With potentially one of the arguments ultimately resulting in the murder of Hellmann.” Handout photo issued by Broward Sheriff’s Office of Lewis BennettCredit:Broward’s Sheriff’s Office /PA A British-Australian sailor murdered his new wife at sea and deliberately sank their catamaran in order to inherit her estate and end their “marital strife”, prosecutors have alleged.Lewis Bennett, of Poole, Dorset, was smuggling rare stolen coins when he was rescued alone off the coast of Cuba without Isabella Hellmann, the mother of his child, last May.Prosecutors in the US have now detailed what they believe to be Bennett’s motives, after the FBI charged him with murder.Court papers filed this week also revealed Ms Hellmann’s family bugged her apartment in Delray Beach, Florida, to listen to Bennett’s conversations because they suspected him in her disappearance.The newlyweds were sailing towards Florida in May last year when Bennett made an SOS call saying Hellman, a 41-year-old former estate agent, was missing and the vessel was sinking. “Hellmann’s murder would remove the marital strife from the defendant’s life, allow the defendant to live his life as he pleased, and would enable him to inherit money from Hellmann’s estate, all of which provide strong circumstantial proof that the defendant had a strong motive to murder Hellmann,” he continued.If Colombian-born Ms Hellmann is presumed dead – as Bennett, 41, has requested – he would inherit her home and the contents of her bank account. Bennett is currently serving a seven-month jail term in Miami’s Federal Detention Center after admitting transporting the coins worth 38,480 dollars (£29,450).Prosecutors alleged Hellmann may have discovered her husband of three months was in possession of gold and silver coins stolen from his former employer in St Maarten, which could have made her an accomplice to smuggling.Mr Greenberg wrote that this “potentially led to an intense argument resulting in Hellmann’s murder”.The FBI accused the British-Australian of intentionally scuttling the 37ft vessel.Ms Hellmann’s body is yet to be found.Bennett is due to go on trail for second degree murder in December.
