Wärtsilä hails LNG carrier progress
Wärtsilä says its more powerful 34DF engine, relaunched with a higher maximum continuous rating in 2013, is becoming the auxiliary engine of choice among South Korean shipyards building LNG carriers.
Wärtsila has already received nearly 100 orders from the three main South Korean shipyards since the 34DF was relaunched.
"While the success has been universal, with contracts from yards and owners globally, the fact that the world's largest shipbuilding nation, South Korea, is increasingly opting for the Wärtsilä 34DF is especially gratifying," said Lars Anderson, vice president, engine sales at Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.
The Wärtsilä 34DF was originally introduced in 2008 and was upgraded in 2013 to provide 11% more power and increased efficiency without changing the physical dimensions.
