Wärtsilä supplies solutions to Spliethoff
Technology group Wärtsilä has been selected to supply a comprehensive package of solutions for two new vessels being built for the Netherlands-based shipping company Spliethoff.
The design of the two 141m DP2-B-type ships, currently under construction at the Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding yard in China, combines the intake of a multi-purpose vessel with dynamic positioning station-keeping ability. The design specified high fuel efficiency and a minimal environmental footprint, and the contract with Wärtsilä was based on these requirements.
“At Spliethoff we have a continuous drive towards greener and more fuel-efficient operations, and the design of our DP2 B-Type vessels reflects these ambitions,” explained Mikael Liljeström, technical department, Spliethoff. “We value Wärtsilä’s strong cooperation during the development phase of this project, and we are confident that the Wärtsilä solutions will meet our requirements,” he added.
The full scope for each vessel includes a Wärtsilä 32 main engine, four Wärtsilä 20 engine generator sets, selective catalytic reduction systems, four transverse and two retractable thrusters and a controllable pitch propeller. Wärtsilä will also supply its Pro-Touch propulsion control system to enable user-friendly control in both free-sailing and dynamic positioning operations. The ships will comply with the IMO’s Tier III regulations.
The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled to be delivered to the yard commencing in Q3 2020.
