The MPSVs will be designed to meet the operational demands of offshore applications

Finland's Wärtsilä has won a contract to design a series of four multi purpose platform support vessels (MPSVs) for Armada Offshore MPSV Limited, a subsidiary of Malaysian offshore oilfield services provider, Bumi Armada Berhad.

Under the contact, Wärtsilä will also supply a complete solutions package. It will provide the basic customised design, the main power generation system, the propulsion system, the Wärtsilä Low Loss Concept (LLC) electrical system and the automation system for each of the four vessels.

Magnus Miemois, vice president of Wärtsilä Ship Power Solutions, said: "The synergistic benefits provided by Wärtsilä in supplying a comprehensive and fully integrated package, including the ship design, highly efficient propulsion machinery, and state of the art automation systems, add real value for the customer.”

This contract follows a similar MPSV order from Bumi Armada Berhad in 2011 for Wärtsilä ship design and fully integrated machinery, electrics and automation.

The WSD 1000 design will be tailored to meet the requirements and operational modes for offshore applications.

The 88m vessels will be built by a subsidiary of Nam Cheon Limited, Malaysian’s largest offshore support vessels builder, at one of its subcontracted yards, Fujan Mawei Shipbuildings Ltd in China.
