Scana Marine Service partners up with Offshore Reparos to handle the Brazilian Market
May 2011, Scana Marine Service entered into an agency agreement with Offshore Reparos Navais LTDA on service and retrofit of propulsion systems.
The agreement entitles Offshore Reparos, a Brazilian company with offices in Rio de Janerio and Nitero, to act on behalf of Scana Marine Service as a service and aftermarket agent, both on aftermarket sales and specific service projects.
“This partnership enables Scana Marine Service and Offshore Reparos to deliver turn-key solutions to the customer, including technical expertise, engineering, complete propulsion packages, installation and commissioning”, says Hallvard Pettersen, head of Scana Marine Service. “To the operators of the various vessels in the Brazilian market this means Scana service representatives are available locally on short notice, and thereby reduce down-time and off-hire to an absolute minimum”, Mr Pettersen continues.
