The agreement for the entrance of the Japanese in Estaleiro Atlântico Sul foresees transfer of technology and experience of the Eastern companies in shipbuilding and offshore in order to increase the productivity and efficiency of EAS. With the entrance of capital at the shipyard, the Japanese will also have seats both at the senior management and the board of directors of the company.
Venturing in the Northeast
In the domestic scenario, Estaleiro Atlântico Sul is responsible for the creation of a new frontier in the segment, by settling in the Northeast region.
Headquartered at Ipojuca-PE, a strategic area from the logistic point of view, EAS represents for the region the attraction of a powerful business chain, considering the complexity of the national and international suppliers of goods and services that integrate the sector.
Moreover, EAS has already delivered two ships for the Program for Modernization and Expansion of Transpetro Fleet (PROMEF). Suezmax Zumbi dos Palmares, commissioned in May this year, and oil tanker João Cândido, delivered in May 2012.
For the president of EAS, Otoniel Rei, this was only possible thanks to the efforts made in restructuring the company. "The result of the investments in training, safety and infrastructure ensured productivity and speed", he reveals.
