Maersk Supply Service has been awarded a two-year contract with PetroRio for Maersk Pacer to perform tanker lifting for offloading operations in Brazil.

“With this contract, Maersk Supply Service demonstrates that we are a trusted and preferred vessel provider in Brazil’s highly challenged market. We look forward to further building our good relationship with PetroRio and continuing our strong track-record of consistently delivering high quality and safe services to our clients,” says CCO Carsten Gram Haagensen.

Maersk Pacer was first contracted with PetroRio (formerly HRT) in 2014 on a 60 day job, which then resulted in a three year contract. With the recent contract award, Maersk Supply Service will continue operations with Maersk Pacer for an additional two-years. The new contract with PetroRio will commence in June 2017.
