Enseada Shipbuilding


Enseada focuses on shipbuilding and offshore exploration. It offers high-tech processes and equipment, based on the highest international standards of quality and productivity. It also operates in ship repairs and is prepared to meet the needs of a wide range of naval facilities, from the most complex, such as pre-salt drilling rigs, to simpler vessels for cargo transportation. In view of its favorable location and resources, including a 1.6-million m2 area and a port facility with a Private Use Terminal, Enseada is simultaneously developing other lines of action in the logistics and industrial segments.
