The technology group Wärtsilä has been selected to supply a comprehensive package of solutions for two new state-of-the-art vessels being built for the Netherlands-based shipping company Spliethoff. The ships are under construction at the Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding yard in China. The order with Wärtsilä is booked in November 2019. The design of the two DP2-B-type ships combines the intake of a multi-purpose vessel with Dynamic Positioning station-keeping ability, thus making them ideal for supplying cargo to offshore installations. The versatile characteristics give the ships a unique position on the market. The design parameters specified high fuel efficiency and a minimal environmental footprint, and the contract with Wärtsilä was based on these requirements.

The full scope for each vessel includes a Wärtsilä 32 main engine, four Wärtsilä 20 engine generator sets, selective catalytic reduction systems for all the engines to abate their nitrogen oxide emissions, four transverse and two retractable thrusters, and a controllable pitch propeller. Wärtsilä will also supply its Pro-Touch propulsion control system to enable user-friendly control in both free-sailing and dynamic positioning operations. The ships will comply with the IMO’s Tier III regulations.
