    • Siem Pearl
      The Siem Pearl became operational in August 2009. The Wärtsilä clean design hybrid solution consists of a combined diesel-electric and diesel-mechanical system. This means the ship can switch between different modes to achieve continuous and optimal efficiency. Compared to conventional diesel-mechanical vessels, dynamic positioning operation offers fuel savings of up to 50%.
