Wärtsilä Receives 1st CWA Design Order

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Wärtsilä, power system integrator, has signed a design and propulsion system order with Taiwan's Jong Shyn Shipbuilding for a product chemical tanker. The 6500 dwt vessel, due for delivery in 2011, is for CPC Corporation (CPC), a Taiwanese state-owned oil company. This is the first order through the Wärtsilä network for a design developed by Conan Wu Associates (CWA), a Wärtsilä Ship Design company, since it was acquired in September 2008.
 
In addition to the design, Wärtsilä will deliver the entire propulsion system, which is to be based around a 9-cylinder in-line Wärtsilä 32 main engine, gearbox, and a controllable pitch propeller. Wärtsilä's extensive scope of supply includes other equipment, such as a bow thruster, the propulsion control system, and all shaft seals and bearings. The contract also includes the supply of an Integrated Automation System for not only the machinery spaces, but the entire ship.
 
With an overall length of 361 ft and an59 ft beam, the single screw tanker will be equipped with a propulsion arrangement capable of delivering a ship speed of up to 13.4 knots, at design draught condition.
 
Willy Perng, Sales Manager, Wärtsilä in Taiwan, said that Wärtsilä has enjoyed a good and long-standing relationship with the customer. CPC has already 12 sets of Wärtsilä two-stroke engines installed in its fleet.
 
"The contract marks a significant milestone for Wärtsilä in that it is the first time we have dealt with the Jong Shyn shipyard. It is also the first time we have supplied CPC with new four-stroke main engines, and the first ever ship design we have sold in Taiwan," said Perng.

The Jong Shyn Shipbuilding Group was established in 1985 and is located in the technical area for shipbuilding in the Qi Jing District of Kaohsiung City, Taiwan.
