The Wärtsilä 31 is the first of a new generation of medium speed engines, designed to set a new benchmark in efficiency and overall emissions performance.
The Wärtsilä 31 is available in 8 to 16 cylinder configurations and has a power output ranging from 4.2 to 8.8 MW, at 720 and 750 rpm. The launch of the Wärtsilä 31 introduces a 4-stroke engine having the best fuel economy of any engine in its class. At the same time, it maintains outstanding performance across the complete operating range. Its modular design enables a significant reduction in maintenance time and costs, thereby improving power availability and reducing the need for spare parts.
The Wärtsilä UNIC is an embedded engine control system for Wärtsilä 4-stroke engines incorporating decades of experience, knowledge and expertise. It makes engines safe, environmentally energy efficient, reliable and flexible. Read more in the brochure.
The Wärtsilä 31 is designed to be suitable for a broad range of ship types and applications, both as a main propulsion engine and in diesel electric configurations, or as an auxiliary engine. It can be optimised for running either at constant speed or along a propeller curve. In the Offshore sector, the Wärtsilä 31 is a perfect solution for OSV´s and drilling or semi-submersible vessels, where operational flexibility, high power density, long intervals between overhauls, and high levels of safety are of paramount importance.
