    Gas Carriers

    Wärtsilä’s solutions for the transportation of liquefied gas include systems for:

    • LNG carriers
    • LPG and Ethylene carriers

    The offering includes everything that can optimise lifecycle value from propulsion, BOG reliquefaction and other gas solutions, cargo handling systems and positioning to complete vessel automation and emission control systems such as inert gas and VOC recovery systems.

    Wärtsilä’s dual-fuel-electric machinery solution provides industry-leading benefits, including environmental compatibility, reliability, redundancy, maintainability, and fuel flexibility, as well as operating economy and safety.

    The environmental aspects of dual-fuel engine technology are extremely beneficial. The solution is very clean and reliable with a high efficiency. There are no visible smoke emissions and no sludge deposits. The low-pressure gas system is safe and simple to operate.

    The use of heavy fuel oil for the DF engines in ‘diesel mode’ further enhances their fuel flexibility, and provides ship operators with the highest degree of control over operating costs when gas and liquid fuel prices fluctuate.

    Gas Solutions

    LNG production, regasification and -liquefaction, VOC recovery, flare gas recovery, hydrocarbon blanketing, cargo handling systems, fuel gas handling.

    Gas Cargo Handling Systems

    We provide solutions for every size of gas carriers carrying LNG, LPG or Ethylene

    Merchant Ship Design

    Wärtsilä Ship Design offer innovative designs for the Merchant vessel segment with a cost efficiency focus that are environmentally compliant with known and future rules and regulations.

    Shuttle Tankers

    Wärtsilä’s solutions for the transportation produced oil from the offshore production units to the onshore oil terminals includes systems for shuttle tankers.

    The offering includes everything that can optimise lifecycle value from propulsion, positioning and cargo pumping systems to complete vessel automation and emission control systems such as inert gas and VOC recovery systems.

    We can integrate the whole offering for our customers into an efficient and environmentally sound package which mets or exceeds all relevant legislation in area from waste water treatmnet to emission to air.

    Our worldwide service network also offer a full range of services from spare parts, maintenance, technical support, performance optimisation, upgrades, conversions and environmental solutions to agreements focusing on overall equipment performance and asset management.

    Tankers

    Wärtsilä’s solutions for the transportation of oil and gas include systems for:

    • Crude tankers
    • Product tankers

    For tankers, fuel consumption is usually the main focus of the solution that Wärtsilä can propose. The standard machinery solution is reliable, simple, safe and economical, with a two-stroke engine connected to a single shaft line. The RT-flex common-rail system in Wärtsilä two-stroke engines has built-in redundancy. This eliminates unexpected engine stops and introduces the highest level of flexibility for engine tuning.

    The benefits of machinery reliability can also be enhanced through the Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) service delivered by Wärtsilä. This aims to provide extended intervals between overhauls and improved operating profits.

    Wärtsilä Ship Design also supports its customers’ businesses with environmentally and economically optimal solutions, such as original designs for product tankers.

      The Wärtsilä AQUARIUS® UV Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) was installed onboard the Twister, a Chemgas BV owned LPG carrier.

      For retrofit applications and upgrades, where space availability can be a determining factor, the modular configuration of Wärtsilä’s AQUARIUS® range was a particular advantage and the entire installation process took just 3 weeks.

    • Provalys
      When taken into service in 2006, the 154,000 m3 LNG carrier Provalys was the largest LNG carrier in existence.

      This modern LNG carrier has clearly demonstrated the advantages of gas fuel propulsion, made possible by Wärtsilä’s pioneering efforts in dual-fuel engine technology.
