RIO DE JANEIRO -- Gusto has contracted Hamworthy to supply seawater lift and electric fire pumps for the Cidade de Paraty FPSO, due for delivery to Petrobras in 2013.

SBM Offshore, Gusto’s parent company, will operate the floater on Petrobras’ behalf in the Tupi Nordeste development in the Santos basin pre-salt area, under a 20-year lease agreement.

The hull is under construction at Keppel Shipyard, and will be transported to Brazil for topside conversion.
Hamworthy’s scope of delivery, which will be supplied from the company’s manufacturing facility in Singapore by next April, comprises three dry mounted seawater lift, electrically driven heavy duty C42BB pumps, to be installed in the FPSO’s pump room, and two electrically driven C22BA firewater pumps for installation in the engine room.
