Closely linked to international trade and the oil and gas sectors, our shipyard, located in Guarujá (SP), occupies an area of 20,000 square meters and has the capacity for simultaneous building and maintenance of small and medium vessels.

Wilson Sons shipyard was the first shipyard in the shipbuilding industry to receive the quality certificate ISO 9000 certified by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance. Currently we are also certified according to ISO 9001:2000.

Over the years, the shipyard has delivered vessels equipped with the best available technologies.

Its efficiency results from the constant search for improvement, which includes the use of advanced technologies and the development of local suppliers to ensure delivery and quality of the materials used. Furthermore, in line with the most modern shipyards of the world, the building model of the shipyard of Guarujá adopts the system of assembly lines, which maximizes productivity.

Guarujá 2 and Rio Grande

Considering the growth of the business and given the strategic importance of shipyards for some of the activities of Wilson Sons, in 2010 an expansion project began. The project will double the built area of the facility and will add a new dry dock. Expanding the capacity of the shipyard of Guarujá will also allow building midsize vessels.

Scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2012, the work is strategically an important element for the increasing participation by the company in the oil and gas market. That is because its geographical location, close to two major oil basins– Santos (SP) and Campos (RJ). This allows the shipyard of Guarujá to be a pillar of construction and maintenance of OSVs (Offshore Support Vessels).

Also aligned with the future vision of the company, there is a project to create a new shipyard in the port of Rio Grande (RS). This shipyard focuses on building vessels to support offshore platforms, such as PSV´s (Platform Supply Vessels), AHTS’s (Anchor Handling Tug Supply), and port and oceanic tugs. The first work on the site will be to build a technical center for training of welders, fitters and painters, along the lines of what already exists at the shipyard of São Paulo coast.
