Petrobras P-52 and P-56 Floating Production Units


Petrobras, Brazil’s national oil company, deployed two new semi-submersible offshore production units 125 km off the Atlantic coast of South America. Timberland supplied the platforms’ 16-point mooring systems with 600-ton chain jacks and 120 mm underwater fairleads, as well as a riser pull-in system with 400-ton linear winch, storage winch, 120-ton winches and 70-ton winches. All systems were supplied with Timberland hydraulic power units and controls.


The P-52 unit was designed to establish a new record for the Brazilian petroleum industry, moored at a depth of 1800 m. Both units were required to meet the customer’s stringent safety and performance specifications along with DNV certification standards for a flagship project in Brazil.


Both projects were successfully moored in deep water and are producing oil from the large reserves of the Roncador oil field.
