Swiss power and automation technology firm ABB has secured a contract to deliver power distribution systems for a pair of offshore accommodation vessels to be built by China’s Cosco Nantong Shipyard.

The cylinder-shaped vessels, which will each have a displacement of around 40,000t and be capable of accommodating 490 people, will be built for Logitel Offshore, a subsidiary of Norwegian firm Sevan Marine.

Under the deal, ABB will deliver an integrated package including an electrical propulsion system, Azipod CZ and an automation system to the Chinese shipyard by October 2014.

The two vessels will be equipped with ABB’s supply power distribution systems, which include generators, switchboards and main transformers, as well as propulsion transformers and frequency converters.

Both vessels will be fitted with six Azipod CZ units, as well as ABB’s System 800xA Extended Automation platform.

The head of ABB’s marine and cranes business unit Heikki Soljama said the company already has a large market share in terms of onboard power and propulsion systems.

"However, this order represents a milestone in our strategy to offer complete solutions for power, propulsion, automation and vessel control," Soljama said.
