Eneti WTIVs to benefit from ABB technologies

Monaco-based Eneti Inc, previously Scorpio Bulkers, has chosen a range of innovative systems from ABB for two USD 330 million advanced offshore wind turbine installation vessels (WTIVs) contracted at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering in South Korea.

The New York-listed company will take delivery of the two WTIVs in the third quarter of 2024 and the second quarter of 2025. The ABB scope of supply, worth around USD 27 million, will include power, automation and control systems, real-time performance analytics, and electric propulsion arrangements.

Rune Braastad, ABB Marine & Ports’ business line manager, Marine Systems, commented: “The Eneti ‘seal of approval‘ acknowledges their preference for our sustainable hybrid propulsion technology and extensive experience with dynamically positioned (DP) vessels, and WTIVs in particular. We look forward to supporting Eneti through the project phase of these state-of-the-art vessels and in the next phase of its offshore wind market journey.”
