Scana’s Propulsion Systems for New Offshore Vessels
- Business & Finance
Scana Propulsion, a subsidiary of Scana Industrier ASA, has signed two contracts for delivery of propulsion equipment to sophisticated offshore vessels. The total value of the contracts are about 38 million NOK.
The contract with Flensburger Schiffbau GmbH in Germany is for delivery of propulsion systems for two Well Intervention vessels for Siem Offshore, Norway. The vessels are a SALT307 design and will be built by Flensburger Shipyard, Germany. The propulsion system from Scana Propulsion is a diesel-electric system consisting of two cp-propellers connected to two reduction gearboxes, and each propeller is driven by two electric motors. The propulsion configuration is
tailor-made for the operational profile of the vessels, and is designed to give optimum fuel efficiency. The equipment will be delivered to Flensburger Schiffbau in Q2 and Q3 of 2015. The vessels are chartered by Helix Energy Solutions for services for Petrobras in Brasil. The contract includes an option for further two vessels.
Scana Propulsion has also signed a contract with Rolls Royce Marine for delivery of reduction gearboxes of twin-in single-out type for the Multipurpose Installation vessel, Island Victory, for Island Offshore. The vessel is of Rolls Royce design and will be built at Vard Brevik. With a bollard pull in excess of 400 tonnes, the Island Victory will perform heavy anchor handling duties, in addition to deep water subsea installation work. The equipment will be delivered from Scana Propulsion in Q2 2015.
“We are proud to be selected by demanding ship owners like Siem Offshore and Island Offshore,” says Hallvard Pettersen, Managing Director of Scana Volda.
Scana Propulsion has by the latest contracts confirmed its position as a supplier for the tailor-made and specialized configurations, for some of the most advanced offshore vessels.
