Wärtsilä launches new PSV design at Nor-ShippingVessel & ROV News // June 3, 2015
Wärtsilä's new PSV is designed to be fuel efficient and eco friendly.
With new rules and regulations affecting the offshore vessel market, Wärtsilä is launching a new PSV design at Nor-Shipping, which is taking place in Oslo 2-5 June.
The new design builds upon Wärtsilä's extensive and successful track record in the PSV segment, and puts the emphasis on increased cost efficiency, innovation and reducing environmental risk.
The company says the design "enables significantly lower fuel consumption when compared to existing PSVs on the market."
The key improvements include an efficient energy system with batteries and optimised hull lines with high propeller efficiency. Other important features include an optimised superstructure and engine room, and an accommodation arrangement that promotes cost efficient construction.
The design is in line with the future regulations for up to 1,200m3 of Type II chemicals, and has significantly improved visibility from the bridge, reduced noise and vibration, and a main deck design that optimises the deck cargo area.
