HELSINKI, Finland -- Wärtsilä has been awarded a contract to supply an integrated total electro-propulsion package for a Russian state-owned ship. The package will be installed in a multi-purpose salvage vessel (MPSV) being built by Russia's Nevsky shipbuilding and ship repair yard in Shlisselburg, Russia.

Wärtsilä will supply four 1370kW diesel generator sets based on its Wärtsilä 20 diesel engines, main generators, and electro motors. The propulsion system is intended to generate enough propulsive power to deliver a service speed of 15 knots.

When launched, the vessel will be used for state marine pollution control, salvage and diving operations, offshore stand-by, and rescue services.
