LNG fuelled drilling rig

Wärtsilä has the technology and the expertise to make a switch to LNG fuel both technically feasible and economically appealing.

Offshore drilling operations need to be capable of handling numerous and often conflicting requirements. From the shareholders standpoint, the primary need is to achieve a good return for the large financial investment required. At the same time, environmental legislation is becoming tougher, and safety requirements are always a pressing priority.

These multiple concerns can only be effectively met by the integration of the very latest technologies. Wärtsilä has developed integrated solutions that offer clean, efficient, and reliable performance for state-of-the-art power production, distribution, and station keeping. The improvement in efficiency created by these Wärtsilä systems can be as much as 30 percent.
