The 153 m long ships are being built for Swiss-Canadian Maritime Ltd and will be managed by Switzerland based ABC Maritime A.G. They are set to be delivered by the shipbuilder in 2017 and will operate between Rotterdam in the Netherlands and Montreal, Canada.
The contract covers Wärtsilä largest scope of supply thus far for delivery to a shipyard in Vietnam. It was signed in November and includes options for three more vessels.
Wärtsilä’s capability to provide a total solution package and to be responsible for the engineering and integration of the solutions provided were key factors in winning the contract.
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, 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 was agreed separately between Triyards Marine Services Pte. Ltd. and Chinese two-stroke engine builder, Yuchai Marine Power Co., Ltd. (YCMP).
“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.
