Modern American Recycling Services Europe has formalized a Limited Notice to Proceed agreement with Shell for dismantling and green recycling of its floating production storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) Fluminense. Fluminense FPSO is expected to arrive in Frederikshavn in 2024 after having received the necessary approvals in conformity with local and international rules.

Modern American Recycling Services, a large barge dismantler and offshore decommissioning provider in the USA, has been awarded with the Green Recycling Limited Notice To Proceed (LNTP) agreement for Shell Brasil Fluminense FPSO.

The deal was made with Shell Brasil Petróleo for dismantling and green recycling of the Shell Fluminense FPSO, after 20 years of services in the Campos Basin (Brasil).

The Fluminense FPSO is a 390m long FPSO, with an LDT of 51.000 Mt, and has been commissioned in 2003 on location of Bijupirá and Salema oil fields in Campos Basin. Bijupirá and Salema fields are located adjacent to each other, around 250 Km east of Rio de Janeiro, in water depths ranging from approximately 470 to 800m.

The unit is expected to arrive at M.A.R.S., Europe yard in 2024, after obtaining the required approvals in compliance with local and international regulations.

“We are glad that Shell Brasil Petróleo has chosen to retire and green recycle the Fluminense FPSO at our EU approved Green Recycling facility in the Port of Frederikshavn, compliant with all local, national and international rules and regulations,” said M.A.R.S today.

Shell is one of the biggest on the market, so this is a great step up the ladder. It is an acknowledgement of M.A.R.S. Europe and an entrance to the worldwide market, evaluates CEO Kim Thygesen, M.A.R.S. Europe in Frederikshavn, in accordance with the Port of Frederikshavn.

He reveals that there are other exciting orders on the way from parts of the world, but he is not giving more information at the present.
