This WSD 800 MPSV is the first in a new series of Wärtsilä designs being marketed as a total solution, including all relevant systems as well as the ship design.
The total solution concept of the WSD 800 MPSV design includes four gensets. These produce more than 6 MW of electric power, which is in turn distributed via Wärtsilä's patented Low Loss Concept for diesel electric propulsion, to two Wärtsilä main azimuth steerable thrusters aft, and two tunnel thrusters forward, and to provide all necessary electric power onboard.
The WSD 800 MPSV has an overall length of 81.6 meters, a beam of 18.4 meters, and a summer draught of 6.8 meters.
The vessel, which is scheduled to be launched and commissioned by the autumn 2012, will be owned by Bumi Armada, the largest owner and operator of offshore support vessels in Malaysia. It will serve the region's offshore oil industry, and its design includes a Remote Operated Vehicle mezzanine deck, crane, and a large 800 square metre deck area.
