Well, Senator Pedro Chaves (PRB) announces that the Russians will take over the factory and the works now, after winning the bid. The company name is Acron.
Acron says that the works must be resumed and an estimated period of 60 days and will pay the 178 suppliers who are not receiving Petrobras since the beginning of the crisis, in fact, many of them have declared bankruptcy due to the non-payment by the state-owned company, with gross debts that reach R$ 38 million reais. With this new scenario, there is a certain spirit among the companies and expectations for the recovery.
