Wärtsilä Voyage has signed a contract to ship the most recent expertise in radio and built-in navigation methods for ten icebreaking LNG-fueled fuel carriers to be constructed for the Arctic LNG-2 undertaking.
The order was positioned in January 2021 and is now in means of execution, in partnership with Samsung Heavy Industries Co. Ltd shipyard. The new contract is an extension of the announcement made final summer season, the place Wärtsilä Voyage outfitted 5 LNG carriers with built-in bridge methods beneath the identical undertaking.
The extra ten carriers would, due to this fact, be fitted with the identical options: Wärtsilä Navi-Radar, Navi-Sailor and Navi-Conning.
The vessels will function between the Yamal Peninsula in northwest Siberia, Russia and the principle European Union ports. The crew is anticipated to face a few of the most difficult climate circumstances. “We will, due to this fact, be putting two bridges within the vessels’ superstructure, with certainly one of them turned 180 levels from the standard place. This peculiar design will enable icebreakers to maneuver each ahead and aft, thus guaranteeing secure navigation beneath hostile Arctic local weather circumstances,” stated Alex Van Knotsenborg, Director Global Sales, Wärtsilä Voyage.
The contract contains the set up of a multifunction show system consisting of 12 workstations with a full set of purposes, together with an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), radar, conning navigation data show system, Bridge Alert Management System (BAMS), and Wärtsilä Navi-Planner for superior route planning. The scope of Wärtsilä options additionally contains IRIDIUM satellite tv for pc communication methods. The workstations are totally built-in right into a unified system, which permits the principle operational capabilities to be duplicated, thereby bettering the protection of ice navigation.
All the navigational methods to be put in come integration-ready with the Wärtsilä Voyage’s flagship Fleet Operations Solution — an industry-first cutting-edge expertise that improves ship-to-shore synergies and operational efficiencies by integrating beforehand fragmented navigational companies beneath one platform.
All the gear put in onboard is totally compliant with the necessities of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) and Bureau Veritas (BV). It is designed and examined to function all 12 months spherical in heavy Arctic circumstances at temperatures all the way down to 52°C under zero. The set up of the gear is scheduled for 2022-2024.
The Arctic LNG-2 undertaking is devoted to the manufacturing, storage and cargo of liquefied pure fuel (LNG) and fuel condensate from the Salmanovsky fuel area of the Gydan Peninsula. The undertaking entails the development of three LNG manufacturing strains with a capability of 6.6 million tons per 12 months, in addition to secure fuel condensate. The complete capability of three strains is projected to be 19.eight million tons of LNG per 12 months.
Since its inception in 1974, Samsung Heavy Industries Co. has efficiently accomplished lots of the world’s largest shipbuilding and offshore engineering, procurement, building initiatives for polar areas. Amongst others, it has developed and constructed the world’s first Arctic shuttle tanker, Liquefied Natural Gas Floating Production Storage and Offloading items (LNG FPSOs), developed and constructed varied Arctic icebreakers and container ships.
