The new Wärtsilä Auxpac 32 generating set delivers up to a maximum of 4160 kWe for auxiliary power generation. This powerful output, together with its compact design, gives it an outstanding power-to-space ratio on the market. The pre-commissioned standard package offers excellent reliability to ensure the availability of electrical power in sufficient quantity as and when needed. Wärtsilä’s energy efficient engine technology minimizes emissions to make environmental compliance easier.
The Auxpac 32 is available as 6, 7, 8 or 9 cylinder configuration. The embedded engine automation system includes serial bus communication interface to the alarm and monitoring system. This results in a minimum of external cabling. All Wärtsilä Auxpac generating sets are designed to be installed resiliently to the ship’s hull. The resilient installation method enables easy installation and alignment of the generating set within the vessel. The advantage over conventional mounting methods is that it notably reduces the structure-borne noise transmitted from the generating sets to the ship’s hull, thus improving onboard comfort levels.

Typical application areas
While the Auxpac 32 has been designed as an auxiliary engine for a variety of vessel types, it is especially suited for providing power to merchant vessels including tankers, bulkers with special focus on very large container vessels.
The Wärtsilä Auxpac 32 is able to operate on different fuels, ranging from the lowest LFO viscosity of 2.0 cSt to an HFO viscosity of 700 cSt (at 50 °C). The engine is also able to use low and ultra low sulphur fuel oils (<0.01% S) as per the standards set by authorities for fuel oil used in emission controlled areas.
The engine is fully compliant with IMO Tier II requirements, and when fitted with exhaust gas after treatment solutions reaches Tier III compliance.
