thyssenkrupp Estaleiro Brasil Sul uses the most modern construction processes, state-of-the-art facilities and currently has a contingent of more than 600 direct workers, a number that should reach 800 very soon.

In addition, it was designed with important sustainability standards such as, for example, the rainwater reuse, ventilation and natural lighting, in addition to an adjacent green area of 55,000 m².

Created in 2013 for the production of high quality and technology offshore support vessels, it is ideal for large projects. In the next two years, around 800 workers will be hired for the PCT (Tamandaré Class Program).

Tamandaré Class Program

thyssenkrupp Estaleiro Brasil Sul is the basis for the construction of Tamandaré Class frigates for the Brazilian Navy. The project is being conducted by Emgepron and Águas Azuis, an alliance between thyssenkrupp Marine Systems, Embraer Defesa & Segurança and Atech.

The city of Itajaí was chosen for its remarkable vocation for shipbuilding, the availability of trained labor and a privileged location in relation to the supply chain and customers.
