Keppel Singmarine awards Wärtsilä DSCV contract

Finnish power sources company Wärtsilä has been awarded the contract to supply an integrated solution for power generation, power distribution and propulsion for a new Diving Support & Construction Vessel (DSCV) currently under construction in Singapore.

Placed by Keppel Singmarine, the Singapore-based builder of the vessel, the order includes the vessel’s main power-generation system, the Wärtsilä Low Loss Concept full-electric and automation system, as well as a complete integrated propulsion system.

The vessel will operate on marine diesel oil (MDO).

Wärtsilä will deliver the systems during the beginning of 2012 and the ship is scheduled to be delivered in the second quarter of 2013.
