Wartsila, 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 Wartsila solution that includes the main power generation system, the propulsion system, the electric and automation system and the automation safety system.

Wartsila is responsible for engineering, delivery and commissioning of the integrated solution and will also supports the yard on-site during the installation phase. The vessel is expected to enter into service in February 2015 for worldwide operations. Wartsila 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 Wartsila Ship Power Solutions. “Wartsila 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 Wartsila’s delivery centres in Europe, Wartsila will mobilize a site management team to the shipyard in Qidong, China, joining in close cooperation with the COSCO project team.
