MAN L27/38 diesel-electric units to power platform supply vessels in major Swire Pacific Offshore contract

Swire has ordered eight IMT-997 platform supply vessels (PSVs), with four to be built by Universal Shipbuilding Corporation in Japan and a further four to be built by EISA Shipyard in Brazil. Each vessel will be equipped with 4 × 6L27/38 MAN gensets, with each unit rated at 1,980 kW at 720 rpm. All generating sets will be constructed by MAN Diesel & Turbo’s Korean licensee, Doosan Engine Co. Ltd.


The 97-metre, 5,000-dwt PSVs will be approved with DP2 (dynamic positioning) capability and have diesel-electric propulsion systems with azimuth propulsion units. The vessels will be delivered progressively from early 2014 on, with genset delivery accordingly timed to stretch from early 2013 through mid-2014.



Established in 1975, Swire Pacific Offshore (SPO) is an established name in the offshore marine industry, owning and operating more than 75 offshore support vessels, a number it intends to boost to over 100 by the close of 2015.



The SPO fleet is modern, with an average age of 10 years, and many of the vessels – a mix of anchor handling tug supply vessels, platform supply vessels, ice-breaking supply vessels, anchor handling tugs, and seismic survey vessels – are equipped with dynamic positioning systems.



Headquartered in Singapore, SPO and its subsidiaries have regional offices distributed globally and operate vessels in every major oil-exploration region outside of North America.
