Maurício Mendonça Godoy a Principal Player in Brazil’s Engineering Economy
Maurício Mendonça Godoy has been a prominent and influential individual in the field of engineering for both inland and offshore petrochemical projects in Brazil. He has served as President and CEO of Toyo-Setal, an engineering company set up with the merger of the Japanese Toyo and the Brazilian-domestic Setal Oil and Gas. Post-merger, both Setal and Maurício Mendonça Godoy were able to draw on the global workforce and management expertise of Toyo to maximize production efficiency.
In this interest, Mr. Godoy was able to implement the software-based efficiency program designed for production plants, AVEVA Plant. Until then, Setal, an EPC company (Engineering, Procurement and Construction), managed workflows with a paper system, dispensed in batches across the departments. This created redundancies in cross-departmental documents and presented difficulties in pivoting quickly. A software platform, such as AVEVA, presented a consolidated source for both construction and engineering, considerably improving workflow and cutting down on man hours.

As a board member of ABEMI (Brazilian Association of Industrial Assembly Engineering)and Management System representative for Toyo-Setal, Maurício Mendonça Godoy has participated in ABEMI’s work to create a base of qualified Brazilian companies and a national brand in the industry, particularly in presenting business cases for Brazil’s engineering capacity and increasing competitiveness to notable investors, such as the petrochemical company, Petrobrás.
As president of Toyo-Setal, Maurício Mendonça Godoy concentrated on diversifying the company’s portfolio across inland and offshore projects in petrochemical, energy and mining. Examples are projects and bids for the R$1.4 billion Cabiúnas state gas treatment unit, the Comperj hydrogen plant and an ammonia unit for the Petrobrás Nitrogen Fertilizer Unit V in Uberaba, Minas Gerais. Mr. Godoy also expanded Toyo-Setal’s focus to water and wastewater treatment and thermoelectric energy.
As well, Mr. Godoy oversaw Toyo-Setal’s Estaleiros do Brasil (EBR) division and its continuing work, during investment downturns in 2015, to complete the FPSO P-74 oil rig 80 days ahead of schedule at its facilities in São José do Norte. The P-74, which can now compress 6 million meters-cubed of gas and produce 150,000 barrels per day, won EBR the “Best Suppliers Petrobras 2018” for “Engineering Works”.
