Navalia introduced to the Brazilian shipbuilding industry

Under the celebration of Navalshore in Rio de Janeiro, the Director of Navalia has held several meetings with different companies from the country's shipbuilding industry with the aim of getting agreements with Galicia and Spain.

RJ Maritime Technology Cluster has been invited to attend the next edition of Navalia in order to learn first-hand about the needs and possible meeting points with the Spanish shipbuilding industry.
In this sense, the leader of Navalia highlighted that Lula’s government "will promote public investment in the shipbuilding industry and in the oil and gas industry, during a speech in the city of Rio de Janeiro." The president assured that his government will use the state oil company Petrobras and the development entity State Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES) as vectors of public investment in key sectors such as the exploitation of hydrocarbons and the recovery of jobs in the shipyards.
"Petrobras will invest again in Rio de Janeiro, the BNDES will invest again in the productive sector, we must rebuild ships and platforms in the shipyards of Rio de Janeiro and recover the oil and gas industry in Brazil (Source: América Economía).
The importance of the military industry of Rio de Janeiro is also highlighted, where the Spanish company Ghenova (official sponsor of Navalia) has been awarded a contract with the Brazilian Navy valued at 1.35M for the detailed engineering of different warships. The works, which will last one year but could be extended to another four, will begin with the completion of the two Macae class patrol vessels, unfinished after the bankruptcy of the Brazilian shipyard Eisa (Source:
In this line of support for the military naval industry, Navalia, has signed a collaboration agreement with the Feindef Foundation to promote the visibility of Spain in the international context in everything related to the construction of military vessels.
