Eagle Paulinia was successfully delivered to Petrobras on 24 July 2020 at 1500 hours (Singapore local time) and is now en-route to Rio de Janeiro to commence her duties. She will be joining her sister vessel, Eagle Petrolina and the two DPSTs we are currently operating in the Brazilian Basin.
Eagle Petrolina and Eagle Paulinia were constructed in South Korea. AET together with the Eaglestar and Samsung Heavy Industries teams took extra health and safety precautions given the pandemic situation to ensure the safe and successful construction and deliveries.
