Mitsui and partners agreed to invest in a long-term charter for a floating production, storage and offloading system (FPSO) for Marlim field, Brazil.

MODEC, Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) and Marubeni are shareholders, alongside Mitsui, under the deal.

Currently, MODEC promotes the long-term charter business.

Mitsui, MOL and Marubeni will invest in Marlim1 MV33, a Dutch firm established by MODEC, and jointly proceed with the project.

The new FPSO, named Anita Garibaldi MV33, will deploy at the Marlim field situated in the Campos Basin.

The Marlim field is located approximately 150km from Rio de Janeiro, off the southeast coast of Brazil.
