Wärtsilä's unmatched ability to supply a complete portfolio of solutions for the
marine and offshore industry is again demonstrated with this latest order for a
series of pumping systems for Statoil.
Wärtsilä has won a valuable order to supply a series of pumps to be installed on
a new floating storage unit (FSU). The FSU is being built by Samsung Heavy
Industries in South Korea for Statoil, the Norway based international energy
company. When completed, it will be located on the Heidrun oil and gas field in
the Norwegian Sea. Delivery of the Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for February,
The order for the deep well cargo offloading pumping system and the fire water
pump package includes 38 deep well cargo pumps produced by Wärtsilä, at Wärtsilä
Svanehøj in Denmark, three
fire water pump skids and two ballast pumps. The
latter items are produced by Wärtsilä, at Wärtsilä Pumps in Singapore. Wärtsilä
has considerable experience in supplying the oil and gas sector with pumping
equipment that meets or exceeds local and international standards. Furthermore,
the electrically driven systems feature low noise levels, high system
efficiency, and simple maintenance.
"The 2012 acquisition of Hamworthy added years of experience and extensive know-
how on pump technology to our in-house competences. This contract is further
testimony to the reputation of our pumping solutions, and strengthens our
position as a major player in the offshore oil and gas industry. The
reliability, ease of installation, and cost effectiveness of these solutions
were all contributing factors in the award of this contract," says Timo Koponen,
Vice President Wärtsilä, Flow & Gas Solutions.
Wärtsilä Hamworthy has recently delivered deep well and fire water pumps built
by the Samsung Heavy Industries yard for other floating production, storage, and
offloading (FPSO) vessels for the offshore sector.
Wärtsilä's offering for the marine market includes ship design services,
engines, propulsion equipment, automation and controls, a range of auxiliary
equipment, environmental solutions and worldwide service network.
