Delivered in 2001, the 47,950 dwt ‘Gypsum Centennial’ is a double-hulled, ice-strengthened bulk carrier equipped with the Wärtsilä RT-flex engine – the world’s first low-speed diesel engine with electronically controlled common-rail fuel injection.
Wärtsilä and Aker Solutions have agreed to combine their fields of expertise to develop a new and environmentally sound concept for offshore wind farm installation vessels.
The ‘MPV Hirta’, launched in 2008, is Marine Scotland’s newest vessel. For the diesel electric propulsion system, Wärtsilä supplied three Wärtsilä 9L20 engines driving a reduction gear and a controllable pitch propeller.
For Offshore Patrol Vessel ‘HMNZS Wellington’, commissioned in 2010, Wärtsilä supplies two controllable pitch propellers, the shafting systems and a bow thrusters. (photo courtesy of 111 Emergency)
The ‘HMS Clyde’ is a Royal Navy Offshore Patrol Vessel commissioned in 2007. On this vessel, Wärtsilä supplies two controllable pitch propellers and the shafting systems. (photo courtesy of BVT)
The ‘HMS Daring’, commissioned in 2009, is the first of six vessels of the new Type 45 class. Each Type 45 Destroyer has an IEP (Integrated Electric Propulsion) system consisting of two gas turbine alternators and two Wärtsilä 12V200 diesel alternators. (photo courtesy of BVT)
The HMS “Queen Elizabeth” is expected to enter service between 2019 and 2023. The prime movers selected for the generating sets are two 12-cylinder and two 16-cylinder Wärtsilä 38 engines for each ship. (photo courtesy of BVT)
The ‘HNLMS Johan De Witt’, commissioned in 2007, is the second LPD with diesel electric propulsion in use by the Royal Netherlands Navy. The power-generation system consists of four Wärtsilä 12V26A generating sets providing 14.4 MW of power for propulsion and services. (photo courtesy to Joost J. Bakker IJmuiden)
The Integrated Modular Customized, IMC designs are custom-made according to your requirements, yet pre-designed and modularized to enable the most cost efficient solutions for newbuildings.
This non-self-propelled jack-up crane barge is capable of lifting up to 800 tons, while jacked up in water depths of up to 45 meters. This Wärtsilä Ship Design barge is 109 m in length, 40 m in breadth, and with a gross tonnage of 11,800 tons.
