Future-proof solutions for bulkers and tankers

Owners and managers of bulkers and tankers are under increasing pressure to maximise lifetime value and minimise operational costs for tanker and bulker vessels – whether new builds or existing vessels. At the same time, stricter environmental regulations are being adopted, including such the International Maritime Organization (IMO) 2050 target of reducing greenhouse gases (GHG) from shipping by 50% compared to 2008 levels.

Wärtsilä’s integrated solutions help you to reduce fuel costs and optimise maintenance processes, increasing the profitability of your vessel as an owned asset and enhancing its resale value at the same time. Rather than contacting shipyards and receiving offers for standard, off-the-shelf designs, Wärtsilä encourage you to reach out to us first. Based on your actual needs, we can look at different technologies and see what alternatives would provide the best ROI.

New Smart Propulsion Machinery

The most environmentally friendly shuttle tanker

Key features

Future proof

  • EEDI compliance (-41%) ; clear roadmap to meet IMO 2050 targets
  • Machinery future fuel ready for ammonia/hydrogen
  • Option to equip with OXICAT, excellent GHG performance

Improved efficiency at actual ship speeds

  • Only one main engine in operation at normal ship speeds at a high engine load and higher efficiency level
  • Propulsion EcoControl for achieving maximum propulsion efficiency, and for achieving full advantage with shaft generator, wind-assistance and air lubrication

Smart power generation

  • Compact, and cost-effective shaft generators connected to the main engines
  • The number of aux gensets can be reduced as the shaft generators also can be used in port. Minimizing operating hours on the aux gensets
  • Small footprint, short engine room, increased cargo capacity

Improved redundancy, improved safety, with a twin-engine configuration
