Malaysia’s largest offshore supply vessel (OSV) operator, Bumi Armada, has just awarded Wärtsilä the contract to design the series of four new build multi-purpose platform support vessels (MPSVs) they announced this past February.

The vessels will be built by a subsidiary of Nam Cheong Limited, Malaysia’s largest builder of OSVs, in one of its subcontracted yards, Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding Ltd, in China. The Wärtsilä contract with Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding Ltd yard was signed in March 2013.

Vessel Particulars:

Wärtsilä WSD 1000
Length, over all: 88.80 m
Breadth mld.: 20.00 m
Depth Moulded: 8.40 m
Speed: 15.0 knots

For each of the four vessels, this comprehensive solution contract comprises the basic customized design, the main power generation system, the propulsion system, the Wärtsilä Low Loss Concept (LLC) electrical system and the automation system. The order follows the successful execution of a similar MPSV order in 2011 for Bumi Armada Berhad featuring a Wärtsilä ship design and fully integrated Wärtsilä machinery, electrics and automation.

“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. Our capabilities as a trusted partner in developing total solutions concepts is again highlighted with this valuable order,” says Magnus Miemois, Vice President, Wärtsilä Ship Power, Solutions.
