Wärtsilä Receives Order for FSV Design

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Wärtsilä, ship power system integrator for the marine industry, has received a ship design order from the Norwegian shipping company Sartor Shipping AS. The order is for two Vik-Sandvik 465 FSV design vessels that will be built at the Wison Heavy Industry shipyard in China. Wärtsilä scope of supply also includes two main engines, gear boxes and propellers. Sartor Shipping has options for further newbuildings at the yard. The vessels are due for delivery in 2010 and 2011.

The design incorporates a hybrid system that offers considerable fuel savings compared to a purely diesel mechanical solution. This is because the available power can be adjusted to meet the various demands of the different operations that this type of vessel will be used for. The savings will be particularly notable when operating at lower power loads.

Multi-functionality is an extremely important feature of this design as the vessels are intended for use in a multitude of different tasks. These are likely to include offshore standby service, emergency towing, oil spill recovery, ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) operations, fire fighting, tanker assistance and surface surveillance.

The vessels will have redundant Dynamical Position system, DP II. The speed of the vessels will be approximately 51 ft. The vessels' length is 216 ft and the beam 59 ft. They will comply with the Bureau Veritas (BV) 'Clean Ship' notation for pollution prevention.

Wärtsilä acquired the global ship design group Vik-Sandvik in July 2008.
