Petrobras has received seven commercial bids in a tender to contract a flotel to carry out operations offshore Brazil.

According to two industry sources, Aquarius Brasil BV finished on top by offering the Aquarius Brasil accommodation and maintenance vessel for a dayrate of $88,000, which would translate into a contract worth about $39.6 million.

Venus Shipping ended in second place with an unnamed compact semi-submersible unit, likely the CSS Venus, for a dayrate of $99,500, followed by Altera Infrastructure with the Arendal Spirit for $125,000.
