The vessel 'Viking Prince' is designed as a state-of-the-art vessel. It features outstanding energy efficiency, a unique hull form, fuel flexibility, and outstanding vessel performance in areas such as fuel economy and cargo capacity.
Wärtsilä at the forefront in environmental vessel solutions
The Eidesvik orders include a unique configuration of the gas electric propulsion system. This is based on a combination comprising the Low Loss Concept for Electric Propulsion, the Wärtsilä 34DF main engines, and the recently introduced Wärtsilä 20DF engine. The dual-fuel units enable, in addition to heavy fuel oil (HFO) and marine diesel oil (MDO), the use of gas as a main fuel for marine applications. Wärtsilä’s ability to offer total concept solutions that include the design of the vessel, the propulsion plant, electrics and automation, and a host of fuel saving and environmentally sustainable options, has given the company a notable competitive edge – particularly in the area of specialty vessels such as Gas PSVs.
Wärtsilä, the marine industry’s leading solutions provider, has strengthened its position as the global leader in supplying design and propulsion solutions for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Platform Supply Vessels (PSVs) with yet another important delivery.
The Wärtsilä solution
All Eidesvik’s gas PSVs are designed by Wärtsilä and utilize Wärtsilä’s unique 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 is fitted for use in arctic waters with ‘winterization’ and de-icing solutions.
