An upgrade package involving a turbocharger exchange to improve engine output and increase certainty of operation.
In most cases, at 50,000 hour intervals, turbochargers require a major overhaul and the rotating parts need to be replaced. However, instead of carrying out this extensive maintenance work, it can make more sense to utilize Wärtsilä’s upgrade package and exchange the turbocharger to take advantage of the latest generation technology.
The benefits of the efficiency improvements are considerable. A reduction in fuel consumption of up to 4 percent can be achieved, thanks to the optimised engine tuning and higher boost.
