The 'Aker Barents' started drilling in 2009 for oil and gas on the Norwegian continental shelf. The new H6e rig is designed to operate in tough environments and at water depths of 3000 metres. Wärtsilä supplied to the drilling rig height 16V26 generating sets, height thrusters FS-2500 and the power distribution system.
Delivered in 2007, the 'Brennholm' is a modern fishing vessel which conforms with strict environmental legislation. The purse seiner / trawler designed by Wärtsilä Ship Design is conceived with an emphasis on low fuel consumption, a minimal environmental footprint, and safety and comfort for the crew.
'KV Barentshav', a Norwegian coast guard vessel, is operating since 2009. The vessel of the Wärtsilä Ship Design, VS 794 CGV, represents a new generation of environmental friendly coast guard vessels, and a major step towards the future of “green” naval vessels.
With a total installed power of 14,720 kW, the ‘Normand Ivan’ from Wärtsilä Ship Design is among the most compact and powerful AHTS vessels in service in the North Sea. The entire propulsion system was delivered as a package by Wärtsilä. The vessel entered service in 2002.
Delivered in 2007, the Offshore Construction Vessel, the ‘Normand Seven', is a large, stable and powerful working platform for offshore construction work created by Wärtsilä Ship Design. The vessel has a large working/cargo deck with high deck load capacity, and is designed with an emphasis on efficiency, safety and cost-efficiency.
The ‘Petrojarl Cidade de Rio das Ostras’ was converted into a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel in 2007. Wärtsilä was among other things responsible for the integrated engineering of electrical, automation, instrumentation and telecom systems.
The move to exploration and production activities in deeper waters is leading to larger and stronger ships that are much more fuel efficient and safer to operate. Wärtsilä’s successful VS491 Anchor Handling Tug Supply (AHTS) is at the forefront of these developments.
Delivered in 2004, the VS 4403 PSV ‘Viking Energy’, designed by Wärtsilä ship Design and built by Kleven Verft AS in Norway, is the world's first LNG-powered supply vessel. The vessel has a diesel-electric propulsion plant with four Wärtsilä 6L32DF dual-fuel engines.
