Wärtsilä's series of pumping systems for Statoil.
 

Wärtsilä's ability to supply a complete portfolio of solutions for the marine and offshore industry is again demonstrated with this latest order for a series of pumping systems for Statoil.


 
Wärtsilä has won an order to supply a series of pumps to be installed on a new floating storage unit (FSU). The FSU is being built by Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea for Statoil, the Norway based international energy company. When completed, it will be located on the Heidrun oil and gas field in the Norwegian Sea. Delivery of the Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for February 2014.


 
The order for the deep well cargo offloading pumping system and the fire water pump package includes 38 deep well cargo pumps produced by Wärtsilä, at Wärtsilä Svanehøj in Denmark, three fire water pump skids and two ballast pumps. The latter items are produced by Wärtsilä, at Wärtsilä Pumps in Singapore. Wärtsilä has experience in supplying the oil and gas sector with pumping equipment that meets or exceeds local and international standards. Furthermore, the electrically driven systems feature low noise levels, high system efficiency, and simple maintenance.


 
"The 2012 acquisition of Hamworthy added years of experience and extensive know-how on pump technology to our in-house competences. This contract is further testimony to the reputation of our pumping solutions, and strengthens our position as a major player in the offshore oil and gas industry. The reliability, ease of installation, and cost effectiveness of these solutions were all contributing factors in the award of this contract," says Timo Koponen, Vice President Wärtsilä, Flow & Gas Solutions.


 
Wärtsilä Hamworthy has recently delivered deep well and fire water pumps built by the Samsung Heavy Industries yard for other floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessels for the offshore sector.
