Wärtsilä, the marine industry’s leading solutions and services provider, will supply a comprehensive, fully integrated power, propulsion and positioning system for a DP3 Dynamically Positioned offshore accommodation rig being built in China.
Wärtsilä, the marine industry’s leading solutions and services provider, will supply a comprehensive, fully integrated power, propulsion and positioning system for a DP3 Dynamically Positioned offshore accommodation rig being built in China. The contract was signed in January with Cosco (Qidong) Offshore Co. Ltd, the yard building the vessel for Singapore based Axis Offshore.

The vessel, equipped with DP3 dynamic positioning system, will feature an integrated Wärtsilä solution that includes the main power generation system, the propulsion system, the electric and automation system and the automation safety system.

Wärtsilä is responsible for engineering, delivery and commissioning of the integrated solution and will also support the yard on-site during the installation phase. The vessel is expected to enter into service in February 2015 for worldwide operations. Wärtsilä will begin deliveries of its equipment in May 2013.

“By opting for a complete solution from a single supplier taking full responsibility for integrating all the systems into an efficient, optimized solution, the yards completion risks of this complex semisubmersible rig are minimized and the owners can expect maximum efficiency with optimal lifecycle costs,” says Magnus Miemois, Vice President Wärtsilä Ship Power Solutions. “Wärtsilä is proud to have been selected to supply this vessel with comprehensive power and positioning systems, which is indicative of the company’s continued market share expansion in the offshore sector.”

While the majority of the solution will be engineered and delivered from Wärtsilä’s delivery centres in Europe, Wärtsilä will mobilize a site management team to the shipyard in Qidong, China, joining in close cooperation with the COSCO project team.

Wärtsilä Corporation opens new Services workshop in Helsinki

Wärtsilä Corporation, Press release, 9 August 2011 at 10 am EET. Wärtsilä, a global leader in complete lifecycle power solutions and services, opens new workshop facilities in Helsinki, Finland.

Wärtsilä Corporation, Press release, 9 August 2011 at 10 am EET

 

Wärtsilä, a global leader in complete lifecycle power solutions and services, opens new workshop facilities in Helsinki, Finland. The new facilities enable Wärtsilä to offer a wide range of workshop services with rapid response times. Operations in Helsinki began in the beginning of August 2011.

 

'The new workshop is strategically located near the main shipping routes and this, together with its efficient storage arrangements, will significantly enhance our service capacity. For customers with maintenance agreements, the added component storage will reduce transportation and travel costs, and ensure prompt response times for vessels operating in the Baltic area,' says Christoph Vitzthum, Group Vice President, Wärtsilä Services.

 

The new workshop, located in Vuosaari Harbour in Eastern Helsinki, covers an area of 1150 square metres and is equipped with 5 and 12.5 tonne overhead cranes, advanced machining equipment, fuel injection system component overhaul tools and testing devices, and the latest technology service tools. Services offered include full workshop operations for engines and propulsion systems, as well as the servicing of mechanical and electrical equipment onboard vessels of all types. The new workshop has also its own transport vehicles to secure fast response capability.

 

The demands placed on the supply of service and maintenance operations are very high in Finland and the Baltic Sea area. This is a result of the increasing awareness of, and focus on environmental aspects, for example through initiatives such as the Baltic Sea Action Group which Wärtsilä supports. Ship owners and vessel operators expect high quality and efficient services with a minimal environmental footprint.

 

This new workshop complements greatly Wärtsilä's workshop services throughout the Baltic Sea region. Wärtsilä has service workshops also in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Lithuania and Estonia and a new workshop was opened in Gdansk, Poland, in May 2011.

 

Vuosaari Harbour, part of the Port of Helsinki, has extensive ro-ro and container facilities with expanding commercial activities, and is Finland's primary channel for imports and exports. Occupying premises located within the harbour zone, the new workshop will operate in parallel with Wärtsilä's existing workshop facilities in Vaasa on the country's west coast.

 

Services is one of the three Wärtsilä's businesses alongside Ship Power and Power Plants. Wärtsilä Services offers services to both the global marine and energy markets and operates the most extensive service network in the industry. The company's extensive portfolio of services includes spare parts and field services, as well as servicing of engines, propulsion systems, electrical and automation systems, and boilers. It also covers environmental services and solutions, upgrades and conversions, long-term agreements for engine and propulsion systems, as well as training services. Wärtsilä's services business is also in the forefront in developing new service concepts to meet customer needs for optimal operational efficiency. Wärtsilä Services operates some 70 fully owned workshops and employs over 11,000 services professionals.

New 20-cylinder Wärtsilä 46F engine introduced

Prime mover with more power, less exhaust emissions while maintaining high efficiency for electricity power generation on heavy fuel oil.
Prime mover with more power, less exhaust emissions while maintaining high efficiency for electricity power generation on heavy fuel oil.

Wärtsilä Corporation today introduced the new 20-cylinder 46F engine for power plant installations burning heavy fuel oil. The new engine develops 23,000 kW at 600 rpm, suitable for both 50 and 60 Hz electricity generation. It offers more power and less emissions than the existing 18-cylinder Wärtsilä 46 engine, while maintaining the high energy efficiency. Therefore the Wärtsilä 20V46F offers more value for money with lower lifecycle costs.

The new Wärtsilä 20V46F engine develops 1150 kW/cylinder compared with 975 kW/cylinder from the Wärtsilä 18V46, at 600 rpm (50/60 Hz) as opposed to 500 rpm (50 Hz) and 514 rpm (60 Hz) respectively.

The Wärtsilä 46F is especially environmentally friendly. It has low NOx emissions, down to 710 ppm NOx at 15% oxygen, which is the required level in India today. The Wärtsilä 20V46F will also be able to comply with the World Bank environmental requirements, which are becoming increasingly stringent. However, as it is a known fact that reducing NOx emissions has an adverse impact on fuel consumption, the Wärtsilä 20V46F incorporates design features which enable optimizing the fuel consumption while meeting the required NOx emission levels. Additionally, the engine can minimize the fuel consumption adaptively according to prevailing ambient conditions
