Wärtsilä will supply the electrical propulsion, control, and electrical distribution systems, including diesel generating sets, steerable thrusters, and the complete automation and safety system, including topside automation.

As part of the contract, Wärtsilä will provide an integrated engineering team to carry out all the engineering. The team also will be involved in the commissioning during the conversion.

This DP well-testing vessel will be converted from an existing Aframax tanker and will be equipped with drilling and production equipment. The vessel will work offshore Brazil 2009 onwards.
