GE Diesel Gen-sets to SKAMEK Power
GE Marine announced that it will supply SKAMEK Power, Alesund, Norway, with four 16-cylinder V250 diesel generator-sets. The engine gen-sets will be used by Polycrest, Stavanger, Norway, for its Offshore Flotel Vessel. The 125 x 25 m offshore accommodation vessel is being built for Polycrest by Factorias Vulcano shipyard in Vigo, Spain. Each of the 16V250 gensets will be rated 3.5 MW at 900 r/min.
The V250 engines will be manufactured at GE’s Grove City, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. facility. The company expects to deliver the four gensets by late 2008. SKAMEK also holds an option for an additional two vessels, for a total of 12 V250 gensets.
This is the second contract between GE and SKAMEK Power in a brief time span. In November 2007 the companies announced that 18 GE V250 gen-sets will power three offshore construction vessels being built by Davie Quebec Shipyard, Levis, Canada.
