Wärtsilä pumps selected for North Sea FSU

Samsung Heavy Industries will build the FSU in South Korea on behalf of Norway’s Statoil.

The Wärtsilä order includes 45 deepwell process and cargo offloading pumps with electric motors and variable speed drive (VSD) panels, three fire water pump skids and two ballast pumps.

Delivery of the Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for spring 2015, and the FSU is expected to be in operation in 2017.
