Wärtsilä Has Design, Equipment For New PSV

Posted on May 5, 2011

Kleven Maritime of Norway has contracted Wärtsilä to design a new LNG-powered platform supply vessel (PSV) for Norwegian operator Rem Offshore. Rem Offshore’s new LNG-powered PSV will be a Wärtsilä Ship Design VS499 LNG PSV, a vessel based originally on the VS489 LNG PSV design. The ship is energy-efficient, has a redesigned hull form and fuel flexibility, as well as increased fuel economy and cargo capacity, the company said.

In addition to vessel design, Wärtsilä’s scope of supply includes dual-fuel (DF) main engines and generating sets, electrical power and propulsion systems, integrated automation and a power management system. The DF engines can also operate on marine diesel oil if required. The vessel will be built at the Kleven Verft yard in Norway.

Wärtsilä’s gas electric propulsion system configuration is based on a combination comprising the company’s Low Loss Concept for electric propulsion, the Wärtsilä 34DF main engines and the recently introduced Wärtsilä 20DF engine.
