Wilson Sons Estaleiros, one of Brazil’s largest providers of integrated logistics and supply chain solutions, began April with the dry-docking of the hydraulic backhoe dredger Simson – owned by Dutch company Van Oord. 

The dry-docking includes structural repairs and improvements in the box-cooler, according to an official Wilson Sons’s announcement.

The operation took place in Guarujá (State of São Paulo) and lasted around 30 days. This was the first dry-docking work that Wilson Sons Estaleiros has conducted for Van Oord.

According to Adalberto Souza, Wilson Sons Estaleiros’ Executive Director, the key factors considered in Van Oord’s decision were the shipyard’s location, infrastructure and excellent safety performance.

Other contracts are under negotiation. Wilson Sons Estaleiros has many competitive advantages: tradition of on-time deliveries, quality, competitive prices and the support of a strong group such as Wilson Sons,” commented Souza.

In addition to Simson, five other dry-dockings were carried out by Wilson Sons Estaleiros between January and March and twenty more are scheduled for 2019. The current order book also contemplates the construction of an escort tug with 90 tons of bollard pull for the Wilson Sons towage fleet, the company said in its release.
