The Wärtsilä EcoControl’s active combinator uses a smart control system that seeks and combines the optimal propeller pitch with the optimal engine loading. In this way, fuel consumption is reduced to its most efficient level during transit sailing modes.
The Wärtsilä EcoControl enables:
- Significant fuel cost savings
- Cruise control functionality
- Visual awareness of actual fuel consumption
An integrated Wärtsilä propulsion system in itself creates value through high efficiency via optimal component selections. Together with the Wärtsilä EcoControl, the efficiency of the vessel propulsion system is enhanced even further to create the most efficient fuel consumption possible. Better fuel efficiency also results in fewer exhaust emissions.
