ABB $15m Order to Power Chinese Vessels

Friday, April 17, 2009

ABB, a power and automation technology group, has won orders worth $15m from Shanghai Salvage Company and Guangzhou Salvage Bureau for the supply of electric power and propulsion systems for a new diving support vessel and semi-submersible heavy lift vessel.

The newly contracted semi-submersible heavy lift vessel is the sixth of its type to be awarded to ABB over the last two years. ABB – in cooperation with local partner Kongsberg – will also deliver the vessel’s automation system. China Merchants Heavy Industry Group is the main contractor for construction of the vessel, which is targetted for delivery in 2011.
 
Shanghai Salvage’s diving support vessel newbuild looks to fill in the gap for deepwater (300 metres deep and greater) diving salvage capability in China, and is also the first diving support vessel ever built in the country. 

All equipment is to be delivered in 2010–2011.
