Wärtsilä say they have signed a repeat integrated solution order with the COSCO (Qidong) Offshore Co.Ltd shipyard covering another DP3 Dynamically Positioned offshore accommodation rig being built for Singapore based Axis Offshore. The Wärtsilä solution includes the main power generation system, the propulsion system, the electric and automation system, and the automation safety system.

The vessel, which is expected to enter service in January 2016, will be equipped with a DP3 dynamic positioning system and will be available for worldwide operations. The dynamic positioning is a system that automatically maintains a vessel's position and heading by using its own propellers and thrusters.
 
"This second order to supply the same yard and owners during the same year with an identical integrated Wärtsilä solution undoubtedly proves the success of our offering. Being able to have the complete power, propulsion, and positioning system delivered from a single supplier means that all elements can be integrated into a synchronised, efficient and optimised total solution. The benefits are many fold, and the Wärtsilä concept can certainly be considered a winner," says Magnus Miemois, Vice President Wärtsilä Ship Power Solutions.
 
The complex semi-submersible accommodation rig is being built by Cosco in China. Wärtsilä will co-operate closely with the yard's project team and will have a site management team to supervise installation of the Wärtsilä equipment.
 
Scope of Supply:

6 x 9-cylinder Wärtsilä 32 engines

6 x Wärtsilä Underwater de-mountable thrusters FS3500/NU
Wärtsilä Propulsion Drives

Wärtsilä Medium and Low voltage switchboards
ICSS (Integrated Control & Safety System) and PMS (Power Management System)
