Sembcorp Marine First Overseas Integrated Yard

The establishment of Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz (EJA), Sembcorp Marine's first overseas integrated new yard facility, is part of the Group's strategy to enhance its competitiveness and growth prospects in the Americas. With the large oil & gas discoveries in Brazil's giant offshore pre-salt fields and its close proximity to the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and West African offshore oil fields, EJA is strategically positioned to serve these high growth sectors.

EJA is located on an 82.5-hectare site with a 1 .6 km long coastline in the municipality of Aracruz in the state of Espirito Santo, about 80 km by road north of the capital of Vitoria.

The integrated yard will be equipped with top notch facilities including a 1 km berthing quay, a floating dock, ancillary piping facilities and steel fabrication workshops. It also features the largest floating crane in Latin America to boost operational efficiency and enhance the yard's competitive edge.

Initial operations commenced in the second half of 2014. On completion, EJA will be capable of undertaking the construction of drillships, semi­submersible and jack-up rigs, platforms and supply vessels, FPSO integration and topside modules fabrication, in addition to drilling rig repairs, ship repairs and modification works.
