A new fast ropax ferry ordered by the Estonia based Tallink Grupp and to be built at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland, will feature Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines running primarily on liquefied natural gas (LNG).
Two Ro-Ro vessels owned and operated by Swedish Stena Line are to be retrofitted with Wärtsilä in-line closed-loop scrubber systems. The scrubbers will be installed on the ‘Stena Transit’ and ‘Stena Transporter’ ferries.
Björn Rosengren, President and CEO: “Wärtsilä performed well in 2014, a year characterised by challenging market conditions. Net sales and profitability developed in line with our expectations. Net sales grew by 4% and profitability reached 11.9%".
Wärtsilä Corporation is to acquire L-3 Marine Systems International which delivers automation, navigation and electrical systems, as well as dynamic positioning technology, and sonar and underwater communications technology for the marine, naval and offshore markets.
