Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines to power LNG carriers
Wärtsilä’s joint venture company CSSC Wärtsilä Engine will deliver 16 engines for four new LNG carriers.
Four Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel generating sets with a total power output of 56 MW will be fitted on each of the 174,000 m3 capacity vessels and run primarily on LNG fuel to provide auxiliary power.
Lars Anderson, vice president of engine sales at Wärtsilä Marine Solutions, said: “"This valuable order once again emphasises Wärtsilä's leading position in gas and dual-fuel engine technology.”
Next year, the engines will be delivered to the Hudong Zhonghua shipyard in China, where the vessels are being built - with delivery scheduled to begin in 2019.
The 34DF engine’s reliability, efficiency, and economic fuel consumption were among the reasons it was chosen for the ships, stated Wärtsilä.
Mr Anderson added: “We are pleased to be working on this project with the Hudong Zhonghua yard, a company with whom we have enjoyed a good relationship for some years.
“The order also confirms our growing presence in China and our ability to serve the Chinese market," says Lars Anderson, Vice President, Engine Sales, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.”
