Scana to supply Petrobras vessels


Written by:

Scana Propulsion will supply fuel-efficient diesel-electric propulsion systems for two offshore vessels that will be used by Petrobras in Brazil.

The two well intervention vessels are being built by another Norwegian company, Siem Offshore, at the shipyard Flensburger Schiffbau GmbH in Germany.

To Scana Propulsion, the contract is worth NOK 38 million ($6.2 million). The propulsion systems include two cp-propellers, connected to two reduction gearboxes, with each propeller driven by two electric motors. The vessels are a SALT307 design. The propulsion configuration is tailor-made for the operational profile of the vessels, and is designed to give optimum fuel efficiency.

The equipment is scheduled for delivery in the second and third quarters of 2015, Scana Propulsion informs in a press release.

The contract includes an option for further two vessels.

Siem Offshore will charter the two well intervention vessels to Helix Energy Solutions for services for Petrobras.

In addition, Scana Propulsion will deliver reduction gearboxes for a Multipurpose Installation vessel designed by Rolls Royce for Island Offshore.

Scana Propulsion has also signed a contract with Rolls Royce Marine for delivery of reduction gearboxes of twin-in single-out type for the Multipurpose Installation vessel, Island Victory, for Island Offshore. The vessel is of Rolls Royce design and will be built at Vard Brevik. With a bollard pull in excess of 400 tonnes, the Island Victory will perform heavy anchor handling duties, in addition to deep water subsea installation work. The equipment will be delivered from Scana Propulsion in Q2 2015.

Scana Propulsion is a subsidiary of Scana Industrier ASA, present in Brazil for years and an NBCC Gold Member.

“We are proud to be selected by demanding ship owners like Siem Offshore and Island Offshore”, says Hallvard Pettersen, Managing Director of Scana Volda.

Scana Propulsion has by the latest contracts confirmed its position as a supplier for the tailor-made and specialized configurations, for some of the most advanced offshore vessels. Hallvard Pettersen is further looking forward to cooperate with Flensburger Schiffbau, Rolls Royce and Vard Brevik for the successful delivery of the vessels to the owners.
