Malaysia’s largest offshore supply vessel (OSV) operator, Bumi Armada, has just awarded WÃ¤rtsilÃ¤ 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 WÃ¤rtsilÃ¤ contract with Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding Ltd yard was signed in March 2013.

Length, over all: 88.80 m
Breadth mld.: 20.00 m

For each of the four vessels, this comprehensive solution contract comprises the basic customized design, the main power generation system, the propulsion system, the WÃ¤rtsilÃ¤ 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 WÃ¤rtsilÃ¤ ship design and fully integrated WÃ¤rtsilÃ¤ machinery, electrics and automation.
“The synergistic benefits provided by WÃ¤rtsilÃ¤ 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, WÃ¤rtsilÃ¤ Ship Power, Solutions.
