Wärtsilä to supply ship power system for WTIV

Wärtsilä, a ship power systems integrator, has signed a contract with gas services contractor Lamprell of the United Arab Emirates to supply a complete ship power system for a new wind-turbine installation vessel (WTIV).

Wärtsilä’s solution has been selected for its low fuel consumption, environmentally sound technology and global service support.

The vessel is scheduled to be launched in summer 2012.

This is the first in a series of two such vessels, with an option for two more at a later date.
