Wartsila 32 Dual fuel control upgrade
The Foinaven is a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel and operating in the West Shetlands.

The vessel is 250 meter long and 34 meter width and started in 1997 with the oil production with a max capacity of 140,000 bopd.. The vessel is powered by four Wartsila 16V32GD and four Wartsila 18V32GD engines.

Each engine drives a medium generator, and the combined output is approximately 50MW.

The engines are able to run on liquid or high pressure gas (350bar) up to full load. The engines can also switch between fuels without interruption to the electrical supply.
The main engine controls, multipoint injector drivers, high pressure electronic rail valves and main engine governor are manufactured by Woodward.

After operational contract renewal, Teekay approached Turner ECS to investigate parts obsolesces issues and field service supportability, minimum 10 years, on long term to guarantee safe and reliable operation.

After conducting a site survey it became clear that the Woodward main engine control (Netcon) and multi point driver modules (EFIC/EFID) could not be supported on the long term.
