Offshore staff

HELSINKI, FinlandWärtsilä has received an order to deliver generating sets for two new well intervention vessels for Siem Offshore A/S. The vessels are being built by Flensburger Schiffbau Gesellschaft (FSG) in Flensburg, Germany.

Eight six-cylinder, in-line Wärtsilä 32 generating sets were chosen for each of these ships, based upon the customer's requirements for best availability, reliability, and economic fuel consumption. Each genset will be fitted with an SCR catalyst to clean the exhaust and NOx emissions so as to comply with the IMO's Tier III environmental regulations.

Delivery of the Wärtsilä equipment will begin in May 2015. The 158-m-long (518-ft-long) ships will be delivered in 2016 and will operate in Brazilian waters.
