Wärtsilä 2-Stroke Engine Power Limitation


How it works

  • Wärtsilä 2-Stroke Engine Power Limitation solution limits the amount of fuel injected when the engine output reaches the Engine Power Limit (EPL) value.
  • For electronically controlled engines, Wärtsilä 2-Stroke Engine Power Limitation functionality is integrated in the engine control software and the power is controlled by limiting the fuel amount.
  • For mechanically controlled engines a new EPL interface box is installed.
  • The system can be overridden by the ship's master or officer of the watch with a switch on the bridge.
  • Overrides are automatically logged for reporting purposes.

Scope of supply

  • Software with EPL functionality (electronically controlled engines) or EPL interface box (mechanically controlled engines)
  • EPL parts
  • Installation, commissioning and verification
  • EPL documentation
