Advanced solutions for increasing operational optimisation on LNG carriers

In the second of our tech talks, Jeremy Crossman, Sales Excellence & Coaching at Wärtsilä Marine Power, speaks to three experts about the latest solutions for increasing operational optimisation on LNG carriers. Fredric Sunabacka, Product Manager for Wärtsilä’s W32 and W34 engines, Michael Kranz, General Manager of Shaft Generator Systems, and Jon Storholt, Manager of Power & Systems Integration, share their insights into Wärtsilä’s 34DF engine, shaft generator systems and hybrid integrated solutions.
 

Premium product paired with expert partnership

There are many reasons that make the Wärtsilä 34DF engine ideal for LNG carriers, both in the engine itself and because of the advantages of partnering with an experienced industry leader like Wärtsilä. “Wärtsilä has over 30 years of experience with gas engines, and all of this knowledge and experience can be seen in the Wärtsilä 34DF engine, which is installed in close to 80 LNG carriers, which is almost 300 engines,” shares Sunabacka. “It has the best power-to-weight ratio on the market and it also boasts some of the lowest greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions thanks to its GHG reduction package, which is available for both newbuilds and as a retrofit package. Energy and lube oil consumption are competitive across the load range, and it can reach full output operating on gas, with a methane number down to 70. It also offers low load optimisation, fuel-sharing capabilities and automatic Cetane tuning.”
