Wärtsilä has been awarded the contract to supply an integrated total electro-propulsion package for a Russian state-owned ship. The package is to be installed in a Multipurpose Salvage Vessel (MPSV) being built by Russia's Nevsky shipbuilding and ship repair yard in Shlisselburg, close to St Petersburg.
 
Wärtsilä's ability to supply integrated total propulsion was an important consideration for the shipyard when selecting the company as a partner for this project. Other important considerations for the shipyard were Wärtsilä's ability to meet the unique technical requirements of the vessel, and willingness to work closely with designers and the customer during equipment engineering. Wärtsilä will supply four 1370kW diesel generator sets based on its well-established Wärtsilä 20 diesel engines, the main generators and the electro motors. The propulsion system is intended to generate enough propulsive power to deliver a service speed of 15 knots.
 
This newbuilding has been contracted by the Nevsky shipbuilding and ship repair yard in accordance with an order placed by Federal State Enterprise Gosmorspassluzhba. The design of the salvage vessel has been developed by the Marine Engineering Bureau of Odessa. When launched, it will be used for state marine pollution control, salvage and diving operations, offshore stand-by, and rescue services. The order was placed in August.
 
The vessel's design is based around an overall hull length of 239.5 ft, a beam of 54.4 ft, and a design draught of 14.7 ft. It is scheduled to be delivered in November 2010, and will then join the Gosmorspassluzhba fleet.
 
With a hold capacity of 98m3 and oil recovery capacity of 766m3, the 70t bollard pull vessel will be well equipped for providing technical support and assistance in hazardous operations, such as search, rescue and evacuation. The vessel's keel was laid in September, and the ship is being built to the classification requirements of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping. The project is part of a state-funded programme to develop Russia's transport system over the next five years.
