China Shipyard Contracts For Wärtsilä DP3 Rig Package

Press Release
Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Wärtsilä to provide integrated power, propulsion and positioning system for DP3 offshore accommodation rig for Singapore's Axis Offshore.

The contract with Cosco (Qidong) Offshore is for the vessel to be equipped with a DP3 dynamic positioning system, and will feature an integrated Wärtsilä solution that includes the main power generation system, the propulsion system, the electric and automation system and the automation safety system.

Wärtsilä is responsible for engineering, delivery and commissioning of the integrated solution and will also support the yard on-site during the installation phase. The vessel is expected to enter into service in February 2015 for worldwide operations. Wärtsilä will begin deliveries of its equipment in May 2013.

"By opting for a complete solution from a single supplier taking full responsibility for integrating all the systems into an efficient, optimized solution, the yards completion risks of this complex semisubmersible rig are minimized and the owners can expect maximum efficiency with optimal lifecycle costs," says Magnus Miemois, Vice President Wärtsilä Ship Power Solutions. "Wärtsilä is proud to have been selected to supply this vessel with comprehensive power and positioning systems, which is indicative of the company's continued market share expansion in the offshore sector."
 
While the majority of the solution will be engineered and delivered from Wärtsilä's delivery centres in Europe, Wärtsilä will mobilize a site management team to the shipyard in Qidong, China, joining in close cooperation with the COSCO project team.
