Wartsila Wins CNOOC Award for Supplier Excellence

Source: 3/18/2010, Location: Asia

Wartsila, the marine industry's leading ship power system integrator, has received an award for supplier excellence from CNOOC, the China National Offshore Oil Corporation. After rigorous internal evaluation by project management teams, 28 Chinese and international vendors participating in nine of CNOOC’s major projects were honoured. Wartsila is involved in four of these projects. This was the first time that CNOOC had arranged such an event to recognise its best suppliers, and the awards were presented at a ceremony held in Beijing.

The project for which Wartsila received the award involves the construction and commissioning of the deepwater pipe-laying and crane vessel named Hai Yang Shi You 201 (HYSY 201). The vessel will be used in the construction and installation of infrastructure needed to develop offshore deepwater oil & gas fields worldwide. Wartsila supplied the diesel-electric power generation system, as well as the vessel’s steerable thruster-driven positioning system. For the HYSY 201 project, CNOOC required a reliable supplier to provide both power and propulsion components.

The total solution offered by Wartsila features low rates of fuel consumption and other technical benefits, such as power reliability and availability. The new pipe-laying and crane vessel is fitted with dynamic positioning (DP) technology, and Wartsila generating sets are well suited to the varying power demands of electrically-driven DP thrusters.

Other projects involving offshore production facilities in which Wartsila has co-operated with CNOOC during recent years, include the NB 35-2 fixed production platform (delivered in 2006), the Nanhai FSPO (delivered in 2008), and a semi-submersible drilling rig (delivery scheduled for 2010).

Commenting on the award, Mr Johan Malm, Director, Project Management, Offshore, Wartsila Ship Power, said: “We enjoy really good co-operation with CNOOC, a key customer and partner for us in the Chinese offshore market. We firmly believe that our effective teamwork and excellence in responding to customer needs will help us develop the relationship with CNOOC further, and we look forward to continuing this good co-operation that is beneficial to both parties.”

Wartsila has extensive experience in well-proven and environmentally sound technologies for the marine and offshore markets. Solutions employing Wartsila technologies similar to those installed on CNOOC’s new pipe-laying and crane vessel, are currently in use on a large number of offshore vessels.
