Wärtsilä Corporation, Trade & Technical Press Release, 4 June 2007
Wärtsilä has been awarded a contract in May 2007 by the Brazilian offshore company Dynamic Producer Inc. to supply the entire power, automation and propulsion system for a dynamically-positioned well-testing FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading) vessel with the project name PIPA II. The project is due for completion in the first part of 2009.
This dynamically-positioned well-testing vessel will be converted from an existing Aframax tanker and equipped with drilling, as well as production equipment. Dynamic Producer Inc. will employ the ship offshore in Brazilian waters from 2009 onwards.
Wärtsilä will supply the electrical propulsion, control and electrical distribution systems, including diesel generating sets, steerable thrusters and the complete automation and safety system, including topside automation.
As part of the contract, Wärtsilä will provide an integrated engineering team which will take care of all engineering related to the delivery of the scope. This team will also be involved in the commissioning phase during the conversion.
This is the third order for a complete solution for the offshore industry that Wärtsilä has received together with alliance partner Emerson Process Management. Similarly power and automation solutions were ordered by Petrojarl ASA for its Siri FPSO conversion and MPF Corp. Ltd. for its multi-purpose floater.
