Brazil engineering firm linked to Petrobras scandal files for bankruptcy

RIO DE JANEIRO, March 25 (Reuters) - Brazilian engineering firm Galvão Engenharia said on Wednesday it filed for bankruptcy protection, as state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA cut off payments due to a broad corruption scandal in which it had been implicated.

Grupo Galvao, the parent company of Galvao Engenharia, said in a statement it has cooperated with the authorities and was never involved in the alleged corruption scheme in which a cartel of engineering and construction firms overcharged Petrobras for work, with the excess being used for bribes.
