Wärtsilä has received several orders for propulsion systems from Russian organizations recently. The most recent contracts include repeat orders for integrated electro-propulsion packages for new state-owned Multipurpose Salvage Vessels, which are part of a national program to develop Russia's transportation system over the next five years.

Last year, Wärtsilä was contracted to deliver an integrated electro-propulsion package for a state-owned Multipurpose Salvage Vessel (MPSV) being built at the Nevsky Shipyard in Schlisselburg, close to St Petersburg. Wärtsilä has now received repeat orders for similar propulsion packages for two more identical MPSVs.

The newbuildings have been contracted by the Nevsky Shipyard in accordance with an order placed by Federal State Enterprise "Gosmorspassluzhba". The design for the new vessels was developed by the Marine Engineering Bureau - Design - SPB and the ships are being built to the classification requirements of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping. They will have an overall length of 239.5 ft, a beam of 54.5 ft and a design draught of 14.7 ft. With a service speed of 15 knots, an oil recovery capacity of 766 cubic metres and a bollard pull of 70 tonnes, they will be used for marine pollution control, salvage and diving operations, offshore standby and rescue services. Delivery of the first MPSV is scheduled for November 2010.

Wärtsilä's scope of supply for each MPSV includes four Wärtsilä 20 generating sets, each with an output of 1370 kW, and medium-voltage electric propulsion (main generators, electric motors, frequency converters, PMS). When selecting a partner for this project, Wärtsilä's ability to supply an integrated total propulsion system was an important consideration. Other significant factors included Wärtsilä's ability to meet the MPSV's unique technical requirements, and a willingness to work closely with both the vessel's designers and the customer during equipment engineering.
