The city was chosen as a safety stop for the crew, while the ship is performing a long trip from Singapore to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. A new ship was a demand of the Brazilian Scientific Community, who was eager to have a new platform to study strategic areas in South and Equatorial Atlantic, performing physical, chemical, biological, geological and environmental characterization of the ocean. Ship’s construction requirements were established by four Brazilian partners: Brazilian Navy; Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation; Petrobras and Vale in September 2012. The ship was constructed in China (Hangtong Shipyard) and Singapore (ST Marine Shipyard) from July 2013 until March 2015. The Norwegian company Northern Research Shipping (NRS) handed over the ship to the Brazilian Navy in Singapore on 24 March 2015.</p><p>Crew: 90 military men<br>Passengers: 40 scientist     </p><p>Open days to public:        25 & 26 June 2015 from 14:00 – 16:00 (open till 17:00 - last visitors will go on board at 16:00) </p><p>Not wheelchair or pram/stroller friendly.</p></div>GP0|#109b3b85-19bb-4e5a-adc2-7470f1448d3e;L0|#0109b3b85-19bb-4e5a-adc2-7470f1448d3e|Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre Garage;GTSet|#77ffa18a-c716-4e28-9e0f-14946dccab8f<img alt="" src="/sites/waterfrontcontent/PublishingImages/Brazilian%20research%20ship%20265x180.jpg" width="380" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />GP0|#1d86d341-0eaa-4d67-97a2-d77258073d8e;L0|#01d86d341-0eaa-4d67-97a2-d77258073d8e|Family;GTSet|#75375da6-0815-46ce-a6c6-47b9173f8b31GP0|#39662898-bf68-4620-a73a-31f09225d50c;L0|#039662898-bf68-4620-a73a-31f09225d50c|June;GTSet|#355f269d-aab9-44ed-8fa8-0a2190be40d801<img alt="" src="/sites/waterfrontcontent/PublishingImages/Brazilian%20research%20ship%20380x380.jpg" width="265" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><div class="ExternalClassACB4154F369845F4A3C73E32AC69F8C2"><p>​N/A</p></div>14h00 - 17h00FreeGP0|#644ad693-23dd-416a-9ea7-ef751c33e9f6;L0|#0644ad693-23dd-416a-9ea7-ef751c33e9f6|Brazilian-Research-Ship-Vital-de-Oliveria;GTSet|#8dbb8159-f73a-4db5-89b5-12dd3cd66408 Jetty 2, V&A WaterfrontThe Brazilian Navy Research Ship “Vital de Oliveira” will be visiting Cape Town in South Africa
