Siemens to Supply Propulsions Systems for PSVs

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Siemens Industry, Inc. announced today that it has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract to equip two platform supply vessels (PSVs) with its diesel electric propulsion solution at Fincantieri Marine Group's Bay Shipbuilding Company in Sturgeon Bay, WI.  A Tidewater Inc. subsidiary will construct the vessels.

The two deepwater PSVs will be outfitted with Siemens Blue™ multi-drive low-voltage propulsion system which improves reliability due to failsafe features that will help the vessel owner lower maintenance costs, and increase efficiency and operational ease for the vessel and crew. The ships' advanced design will also decrease fuel consumption, resulting in reduced emissions of harmful greenhouse gases.

Siemens will provide the main generators, main propulsion and thruster motors, switchboards, power management system and its IMAC Automation system for alarm, monitoring and control functions, in addition to a unique, fully integrated Siemens electrical FiFi 2 system.  As part of a Sole Source Vendor (SSV) solution, Siemens is also responsible for the designing, engineering, commissioning and project management of the diesel electric and automation system.

Certified by the American Bureau of Shipping, each PSV will be 92.5 meters long and 19 meters wide. Both ships will be capable of speeds of more than 14 knots and are designed to carry a variety of cargoes, including large quantities of fuel, water, drilling fluids, and dry bulk in below-deck tanks, while simultaneously transporting casing, drill pipes and containers on open-decks.

The vessels are slated for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2012 and the second quarter of 2013 respectively.
