Wärtsilä receives LNG PSV order from Eidesvik Offshore

Marine industry provider Wärtsilä has strengthened its position as the global leader in supplying design and propulsion solutions for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Platform Supply Vessels (PSVs) with another large order.

Norwegian operator Eidesvik Offshore has placed an order for its fifth gas PSV, which like the previous PSVs, will utilise Wärtsilä’s dual-fuel technology.

In addition to the complete design of the vessel, Wärtsilä’s scope of supply for the new PSV includes the dual-fuel main engines and generating sets, the electrical power and propulsion system, integrated automation and the power management system.

The vessel, to be built at Kleven Verft in Norway, will be fitted for use in arctic waters with ’winterisation’ and de-icing solutions.
