Wärtsilä integrated solution and expertise chosen for chemical tankers to be built in Vietnam

Three new 21,800 dwt chemical tankers, under construction at two different shipyards in Vietnam owned by Triyards Holdings Limited, will feature integrated Wärtsilä propulsion and power generation systems. These ships are being built for Swiss-Canadian Maritime Ltd and will be managed by Switzerland based ABC Maritime A.G. The contract with Wärtsilä was signed in November, and there are options for three more vessels.

This contract represents the largest ever scope of supply that Wärtsilä is to deliver to a shipyard in Vietnam. Wärtsilä’s capability for providing a total solution package and to be responsible for the engineering and integration of the solutions provided, is cited as being a key factor in the award of this contract.

“Wärtsilä is a global leader and their propulsion and power generation systems are among the best in the world. We are therefore confident that the technology of their systems will enhance the capabilities and performance of the chemical tankers we are building,” says Chan Eng Yew, Chief Executive Officer of Triyards Holdings Limited.

“These are the first chemical tankers that the yards have been contracted to build, and Wärtsilä’s support and know-how for the engineering and systems integration is of considerable importance. We are delighted to be working once again in Vietnam and are extremely pleased to be cooperating with Triyards in this important project,” says Hans Laheij, Sales Director, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.

For each vessel Wärtsilä will supply a controllable pitch propeller (CPP), a tunnel gearbox, a shaft alternator, two tunnel thrusters, three Auxpac generating sets, a Wärtsilä Propulsion Condition Monitoring System (PCMS), as well as all related auxiliaries for the various systems. The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled to be delivered to the yards during 2016. In addition to this, the ships will be powered by a 6-cylinder Wärtsilä X40-B two-stroke main engine designed by Winterthur Gas & Diesel, a joint venture between Wärtsilä and China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC). The engine contract has been agreed separately between Triyards Marine Services Pte. Ltd. and the Chinese two-stroke engine builder, Yuchai Marine Power Co., Ltd. (YCMP).

The three 153 metre long tankers are set to be delivered to the owner in 2017. They will operate between Rotterdam in the Netherlands and Montreal, Canada.
