Technical Managers Bring Experience to 2H Offshore’s Brazil Team Rio de JaneiroOctober 2013 2H Offshore, an Acteon company, has appointed Pedro Viana and Roberto Alvim as the technical managers of its Rio de Janeiro, Brazil office to strengthen its management team and drive business growth. Viana was the first engineer hired when 2H Offshore’s Brazil office opened in 2003. He has participated directly in the development of the office since its inception, and has supported both the technical and management activities of the company. Viana has experience in a range of conceptual, front-end-engineering design (FEED), detailed design and monitoring projects for many types of riser systems and complexities, and in different 2H Offshore offices around the world. His key project roles have included being the lead systems and lead analysis engineer for the Petrobras Guará–Lula NE buoyancy-supported riser project from early pre-FEED engineering studies through to the completion of the final detailed design. Alvim joined 2H Offshore with six years’ experience in equipment design for the offshore industry. He graduated with a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro in 2005. Alvim was the second engineer 2H Offshore hired in Brazil and, like Viana, has been an integral part of the growth of the Rio de Janeiro office. Alvim has worked on several analysis projects, including drilling, completion and production risers systems. For the past four years, he has managed a range of engineering projects, including FEED and conceptual studies for major oil and gas projects offshore Brazil. Viana and Alvim will share responsibility for the management of the office with Pete Simpson, general manager. “I am delighted that Pedro and Roberto will be joining me as members of the 2H Brazil management team,” Simpson said. “They have shown their innovative engineering capabilities over the past 10 years and have contributed a great deal to 2H and its projects around the world. Their knowledge will provide support and an expert perspective for the engineering team here in Brazil.” Share this page Share on FacebookShare on LinkedinShare on Twitter Return to news list News 2H Offshore Appoints Mike Campbell and Ricky Thethi as Global Directors 2H Offshore Installs Fast-Track Conductor-Supported Platform Offshore Malaysia 2H Offshore launches JIP to facilitate sustained production for TTRs 2H Offshore expands STREAM JIP for improved SCR and lazy-wave riser design 2H Offshore Installs Retrofit Conductor Supported Platform, offshore Bahrain Get the latest riser insights!Receive our riser news, published papers and blog posts in your inbox monthly.
