The P-63 Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel, developed specifically to work in Brazil’s offshore Papa Terra oil field, is unique in that it will be the first FPSO vessel to utilize gas-fueled engines to produce more than 100 MW of power. The contract to supply the three main power modules to achieve this demanding output was awarded to Wärtsilä. This also includes commissioning, start-up and operational supervision.
Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines were selected as the most suitable solution for the application, with each power module including two 18-cylinder 50DF engines in V-configuration. The alternators and auxiliary equipment are also installed within the modules, Fig. 1.
