Orders for Generator-Set Engines

Two recent orders for Wärtsilä 200 diesel engines demonstrate the diversity of possibilities for these compact prime movers available from Wärtsilä NSD Corporation. With their benefits of compact size and heavy-duty features, the Wärtsilä 200 diesel engines have achieved a significant market share in offshore power generation applications all over the world. Other significant applications for Wärtsilä 200 marine engines include passenger vessels up to 120 metres long and naval craft.

With cylinder dimensions of 200 mm bore by 240 mm piston stroke, Wärtsilä 200 engines are built in 12-, 16- and 18-cylinder V- configuration covering a continuous output range from 2100 kW to 3600 kW. With nominal running speeds of either 1200 or 1500 rev/min these engines have a high power concentration.

Transocean SedcoForex of Houston, Texas, has ordered four Wärtsilä 12V200 generating sets for re-powering their Transocean 135D semi-submersible offshore platform. These 2020 kW generating sets will be delivered in October this year and will be installed while the semi-submersible is on station in Brazil. This is the fifth platform for which Transocean SedcoForex has selected Wärtsilä 200 generating sets.Fincantieri in Italy has ordered two 12V200 main engines to power the diesel-electric propulsion system of a new multipurpose support vessel contracted by the Italian Navy. These engines have a combined output of 4800 kW at 1500 rev/min. This order is a breakthrough for Wärtsilä 200 marine engines in naval applications. Compact size and superior load acceptance capability were the selection merits for Wärtsilä 200 engines.
