WSD Jack-up/Liftboat

WSD Jack-up/Liftboat

Wärtsilä has been awarded the contract to provide the design for a new jack-up lift vessel. The contract was signed in March with a well known Chinese yard and there is an option for three more vessels.

The Wärtsilä design is developed in collaboration with Altis, a consultancy company specialising in the lift boat market.  Wärtsilä Ship Design has considerable experience in designing offshore and specialised vessels, and its selection for the design of a new, next generation, lift vessel is considered an acknowledgement of the company’s strong track record. Lift vessels are self-propelled and provide an offshore elevating platform with manoeuvring capabilities to support various operations, including oil well intervention activities, and the maintenance, repairs, upgrades and removal of offshore rigs.

“Wärtsilä was chosen to design this new series of vessels because of our expertise, as well as our strong track record in the offshore market. Furthermore, our global engineering and project development services mean that we can be a valuable local partner to both the yard and the owner.”
