A year of great achievements

Rio de Janeiro, July 14th, 2021 - New contracts and ongoing projects consolidate HMSWeb's milestones

HMSWeb won four new contracts for its portfolio, confirming the expectations regarding the return of activities in the markets in which it actuates. In addition to the ongoing contracts, the company reaches a milestone of 40 active projects with 13 clients and expects a record revenue.


Three of the new contracts, covering licensing and implementation and support services, are related to the mining area: two with Vale, covering VALS11DM10 and VALGELADO projects, in the S11D Eliezer Batista Complex, and one with TSA Engenharia (TSAMUSA1 project), regarding Mineração Usiminas (MUSA).

Once more HMSWeb take part in projects at S11D, the largest mining complex in Vale's history. The VALGELADO refers to the Gelado program, which provides the recovery of 10 million tons per year of iron ore from tailing dams. It covers a plant of magnetic concentration and recovery of iron ore arising from dams, in addition to the construction of Apinha road, which aims to improve the urban mobility in Parauapebas (PA), where the complex is located. The VALS11DM10 project aims to expand in more 10 Mtpa (million tons of iron ore per year) the production capacity of the complex, which today corresponds to 90Mtpa.

“With regard to Vale, with which we developed a vibrant relationship for over a decade, we are expecting, at least, 10 new projects in the next months, continually reinforcing the importance of HMSWeb in the management of its projects commissioning”, says the CEO for HMSWeb Information Technology, Luciano Gaete.

With TSA, the software is being licensed for the commissioning project of Dry Stacking of Mineração Usiminas. It is a new system of filtered tailing disposal which will allow Musa to end the cycle of using dams for the disposal of tailings generated in the iron ore processing.


The fourth contract won by HMSWeb is in agribusiness area: The CRLTEGNET project, related to the expansion and modernization (Revamp) of the Terminal Exportador do Guarujá (TEG - Guarujá Exporter Terminal), one of the three terminals operated by Cargill in Baixada Santista, in the area that has the largest port complex of the country. The contract scope is the licensing of HMSWeb, a tool that is well-known by the contracting party team.

“These four new projects, in addition to the others we executed this year, demonstrate that our strategy is correct. We expect to double the revenue in relation to the previous year, reaching the highest result of HMSWeb history”, assesses Gaete, highlighting other milestones that placed the company in a prominent position in the market in which it actuates.

“From January to September, we celebrated 20 contracts with long-term clients, as Vale and Techint, and with new partners. We currently have 40 active projects with 13 clients, which represent another milestone”, calculates the executive. “We consolidate our presence in new markets, as Paper and Cellulose industry, and we reinforce our position along with the clients. All this, added to the excellent commercial perspectives under development, certainly make us very optimistic and confident in the future of HMSWeb and Forship Group”, he concludes.
