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.
