Wilhelmsen Technical Solutions (WTS) says it has been awarded contracts to supply its patented Unitor XFlow low pressure water mist fire fighting systems to newbuildings under construction for two leading Norwegian offshore vessel shipowners, as follows

Ulsteinvik-based Island Offshore has specified Unitor XFlow for two vessels under construction by Vard at its Brevik facility. The scope of the contract includes supply of a total flooding water mist system for the ship’s engine room and a local protection water mist system. The vessels which are being built to a Rolls-Royce design will be delivered to Island Offshore in 2014 and Q1 2015.

Bergen-based GC Reiber will install the XFlow system on a seismic research vessel under construction at Myklebust Verft for delivery in 2015. Built to a Skipsteknisk design, the vessel will also feature a total flooding water mist system for the engine room and a local protection water mist system.

Andreas Dåsvatn, Sales Manager – Nordic, for Wilhelmsen Technical Solutions commented: “Both Island Offshore and GC Reiber are recognised globally as operators of advanced offshore fleets with a high degree of operational functionality. In Vard and Myklebust Verft they have partners with long experience in building sophisticated vessels to high quality standards. In specifying the Unitor XFlow water mist fire fighting solution they are taking advantage of new, low pressure technology that delivers a very effective and reliable solution with low power demand and reduced risk of clogging at a very competitive price.”
