Wärtsilä ship designs and propulsion systems chosen for three new platform supply vessels to be operated by Statoil

Wärtsilä  has been contracted to supply the ship designs for three new platform supply vessels (PSVs). The contracts have been signed with Kleven Maritime AS, the Norwegian shipyard that will build the vessels, two of which will be owned by Atlantic Offshore and the other by Remøy Shipping. Both are Norway based companies. All three ships will be operated by Statoil, the partly state-owned Norwegian oil and gas company.

The two PSVs for Atlantic Offshore will also feature Wärtsilä power and propulsion, electrical and automation systems, including the patented Wärtsilä Low Loss Concept (LLC). The highly redundant diesel-electric system provides additional reliability for continuous operation in various failure modes. They are based on the well proven Wärtsilä Ship Design VS485 format, and are 90.4 metres in length.

The vessels will attain the highest possible Environmental Rating Number (ERN) of 99.99.99.99, representing their capacity to maintain position and normal operations in certain weather conditions.

The Integrated Automation System (IAS) to be delivered will also include the advanced Wärtsilä ECOmeter. This feature allows the operator to be able to optimize the vessel’s fuel consumption, and is an efficient tool for track planning, as well as ensuring the most efficient running of the generators. The vessels are also required to meet the IMO’s most stringent requirements regarding emissions of NOx.

The Remøy Shipping owned PSV will operate on liquefied natural gas (LNG), and is the eighth LNG PSV to be built based on Wärtsilä designs. This order, therefore, strengthens Wärtsilä’s leading position in the LNG PSV design market.

Wärtsilä’s equipment deliveries will begin in autumn 2013, and all three vessels are scheduled to be operational by the end of 2014.
