Expansion of Powerful Global Offshore Alliance
Jul 31 2008
The companies` expanded relationship combines the process automation knowledge and state-of-the-art measurement and digital automation
technology of Emerson, with the high efficiency power-generation, power-distribution and vesselautomation systems and products of Wärtsilä.
Combined, they offer a single point for serving the Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) segment. In particular, they can now offer all system engineering, purchase, installations, commissioning and servicing for this market.
“The global sourcing and supply required in FPSO construction amplify the importance of the expert engineering and project management
that our alliance makes available,” said Jaakko Eskola, Group Vice President, Wärtsilä Ship Power. “Emerson and Wärtsilä`s enhanced
alliance delivers efficiency, true system integration, turnkey delivery and extended engineering services. We will also enable smooth tanker conversion and commissioning at the site, effectively delivering first oil rapidly at the highest speed.”
“The expanded alliance provides a strong local presence in the most dominant areas of oil and gas exploration around the globe. This worldwide capability ensures that single-stop service is closer to the customer,” commented Tom Snead, President of Emerson`s systems and solutions division. “The comprehensive project and engineering capabilities provide unique advantages for builders, owners, and operators in the marine industry by reducing risk in their
capital intensive projects.”
