Emerson, Wärtsilä Automation partner to deliver integrated automation systems


Austin, TX —Those seeking electrical and instrumentation systems in the floating, production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) segment may benefit from an alliance between Emerson Process Management and Wärtsilä Automation Norway. The alliance brings together process management knowledge and digital automation architecture of Emerson and the power and vessel automation systems expertise of Wärtsilä to deliver integrated systems using technologies of both.

Engineering teams will develop turnkey solutions by collaborating from front-end engineering and design (FEED) through FPSO commissioning and operation. Delivered systems can include diesel and dual fuel engines, power distribution systems, electrical drives, motor control centers, and safety and automation systems including metering, valves, and instrumentation.

The combined effort reportedly will deliver project efficiency, speed, and savings for FPSO builders. Each said they are committed to providing integrated systems on a common platform. The first collaborative project is for BW Offshores FPSO BW Enterprise. Delivery includes power distribution with high- and medium-voltage motor control centers and safety and automation systems, including Emerson’s PlantWeb digital automation architecture and Daniel metering station, instruments, and valves.
