The technology group Wartsila, through its joint venture company CSSC Wartsila Engine (Shanghai) Co (CWEC), has been contracted to deliver 16 engines for four new LNG carrier vessels being built at the Hudong Zhonghua shipyard in China. The order was booked in August 2017.

Each of the four 174,000 m3 capacity vessels will be fitted with four Wartsila 34DF dual-fuel generating sets running primarily on LNG fuel to provide the ships with auxiliary power. Their total power output will be 56 MW. Among the reasons given for the Wartsila 34DF engine being chosen for these ships were its proven reliability, efficiency, and economic fuel consumption. Delivery of the engines to the yard will commence in the second half of 2018. The vessels are scheduled to be delivered commencing in 2019.

“This valuable order once again emphasises Wartsila’s leading position in gas and dual-fuel engine technology. 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, Wartsila Marine Solutions.

Wartsila is reporting that its continuing positive order trend from reputable international LNG carrier owners is the result of the company’s advanced technologies, especially in gas and dual-fuel engine applications. Furthermore, the company’s extensive global service network, which is unmatched in the marine sector, is often cited as a major factor in the decision to purchase from Wartsila.
