Wartsila To Power Diving Support & Construction Vessel
Wärtsilä has been awarded the contract to supply an integrated system for power generation, power distribution, and propulsion for a new Diving Support & Construction Vessel (DSCV) currently under construction in Singapore.
The order has been placed by Keppel Singmarine, the Singapore-based builder of the vessel. The contract includes the vessel's main power generation system, the Wärtsilä Low Loss Concept full electric and automation system, and a complete integrated propulsion system. The vessel will operate on marine diesel oil (MDO). Wärtsilä will deliver the systems during the beginning of 2012, and the ship is scheduled to be delivered in the second quarter of 2013.
Wärtsilä’s scope of supply includes two 9L26 medium-speed engines, four 6L26 medium-speed engines, two of the company’s Low Loss Concept electric and automation packages, two gearbox assemblies, two controllable pitch propellers and five tunnel thrusters.
The vessel will be owned and operated by the Dutch public company SBM Offshore N.V., the holding company of a group of international, marine technology orientated companies.
