Wartsila Engines & Propulsion Solutions to Power Two New Fishing Trawlers

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 8/7/2017, Location: Asia

The technology group Wartsila has been contracted to provide the engines and the complete propulsion package, including the propulsion control system for two new fishing trawlers being built for Murmansk, Russia based Nord Pilgrim Ltd. The ships are to be constructed at the PJSC Vyborg shipyard in Russia. The orders with Wartsila were booked in June, 2017.

The 80 metres long trawlers will be reinforced to Ice3 class, thereby enabling them to extend their fishing operations in the Barents Sea and North Atlantic. Because of the challenging conditions, the reliability and efficiency of the propulsion arrangement was considered a key factor in the award of the contracts to Wartsila. Furthermore, the Wartsila engines are compliant with the IMO’s current Tier II regulations.

“For vessels with just a single main engine and one propeller operating in remote and difficult waters, nothing can be allowed to go wrong. For this reason, we are proud that Wartsila was chosen to supply the propulsion machinery. It is a clear endorsement of the proven reliability of this technology. The fact that we are supplying the full package allows us greater control over the complete driveline,” says Alexander Staritsyn, General Manager – Europe & Africa, Marine Solutions, Wartsila Corporation.

“Nord Pilgrim’s current fleet already uses a number of Wartsila solutions, and we have worked with Wartsila on other successful projects. We are, therefore, very confident that their engines and equipment are the right choice for these vessels,” says Alexander Solovyev, Director, PJSC Vyborg.

Wartsila’s full scope of supply is for each ship one 8-cylinder Wartsila 32 main engine, one Wartsila gearbox, one Wartsila controllable pitch propeller system, one transverse thrusters system, and a Wartsila ProTouch propulsion control system. Auxiliary generating power will be supplied by one 6-cylinder and one 4-cylinder Wartsila 20 Auxpac engine. The equipment is scheduled for delivery to the yard in March 2018 and January 2019.

The gearbox has integrated hydraulics, which increases its reliability while also reducing the space needed. This arrangement facilitates easier installation and commissioning. The Wartsila ProTouch system features an award winning control panel.

Wartsila has years of experience in supplying products, systems and solutions for vessels working in extreme environmental conditions. Furthermore, the company has service support facilities in Murmansk.
