Fuel flexibility is a key feature of the new suite of container feeder vessels

Wärtsilä has launched a series of four new container feeder vessel designs which it says strive for optimal fuel efficiency while complying with all known current and future environmental regulations.

The WSD80-1500, WSD80-2400, WSD80-4000 and WSD84-2400 are said to feature exceptionally low and best-in-class fuel consumption. Each design is available in three versions; 'conventional' using HFO as fuel, 'environmental' using HFO with exhaust cleaning scrubber systems, and 'clean' with dual-fuel capability and running mainly on LNG.
 
Fuel flexibility is a main feature of the designs along with fuel efficiency, cargo capacity, systems redundancy and the lowest possible levels of exhaust emissions. Since container feeder vessels operate largely within existing or anticipated ECA (Emissions Control Areas) or SECA (Sulphur Emissions Control Areas), environmentally compliant designs are extremely relevant, the company noted.
