The unit arrived at the BrasFELS shipyard in early October 2022 and underwent final commissioning of the process plant, acceptance tests and regulatory inspections.
The company also said that, shortly after setting sail from the shipyard, the Anna Nery underwent tests required by the Brazilian Navy in the anchoring area and was connected to the ocean tugs that are leading to the final location in the Campos Basin.
