Tuesday, August 29, 2006
Wärtsilä was awarded a contract from MPF Corp. Ltd to deliver a total power system for a Multi-Purpose Floater. The MPF is planned to be completed and delivered from Dragados Offshore SA, Spain in the fourth quarter of 2008. The contract involves detail design, products, systems and commissioning of the power plant, propulsion, electrical and automation systems. Delivery of the major components will be during the first quarter of 2008.

Wärtsilä will deliver eight Wärtsilä 32 diesel engines, generators, medium voltage switchgear, low voltage distribution boards, frequency converters, safety and automation systems. Wärtsilä's own frequency converter technology became part of Wärtsilä's product portfolio in conjunction with the acquisition of Wärtsilä Automation Norway. The MPF 1000 is said to be the largest offshore drilling unit ever built. The MPF 1000 can combine floating production, storage and offloading with drilling. It is designed for simultaneous drilling and production in deep waters.
