Wärtsilä set to supply LNG package for oilfield vessel

Wärtsilä, a provider of marine industry products and services, has been awarded a contract to supply a complete liquefied natural gas (LNG) package, including the propulsion, auxiliaries and controls, for a new offshore support vessel designed by STX Marine.

The ship has been ordered by Harvey Gulf International Marine as a part of the company’s ‘Going Green’ initiative. The vessel will operate in the Gulf of Mexico’s offshore oilfield.

This latest order is the fifth that Wärtsilä has received from Harvey Gulf for gas-fuelled propulsion systems.

Harvey Gulf’s ‘Going Green’ initiative is intended to reduce the environmental impact of the company’s vessels and operations.
