A Wärtsilä innovation, Fit4Fuels is a retrofit technology platform to convert 2-stroke diesel engines to run on future fuels. Our ground-breaking hybrid combustion concept maintains engine power density and eliminates fuel slip. Extends an average ship’s CII compliance by 3-5 years. Offers breathing space until uncertainties in fuel availability and cost resolve. When it is time to convert, the engine efficiency carries over. Making new fuels more economic. All of which makes this the ideal first step in your decarbonization journey.
Fit4Fuel – the 2-Stroke future fuels conversion platform deploys innovative fuel injection technology. Thanks to Fit4Fuel, the environmental advantages from using LNG and future fuels could be within your reach.

Our patented technology features a pioneering cryogenic fuel supply system and flexible combustion process that is efficient, easy to install, and upgradeable. Features include:
Based on current fuel prices, converting two-stroke engines to future fuels brings substantial economic benefits. For typical larger vessels (for example a 10,000–13,000 TEU container ship) consuming 30,000 tons of liquid fuel per year with a 10-year remaining lifetime, the conversion is a sound investment. With less than four years’ payback time the conversion enables CO2 reduction of 21,000 tons annually.
Converting your vessel’s engines to run on sustainable fuels is a great way to reduce your emissions. You will find 49 more ways in a fascinating eBook “50 great ways the maritime industry could cut its greenhouse gas emissions”. Learn more:
Choosing a fleet decarbonisation strategy depends on several factors including vessel characteristics, operating profile, area of operation and fuel availability. Wärtsilä’s unparalleled expertise across technologies and wide project experience means we can help ship operators understand the business case behind decarbonisation choices – and support implementation every step of the way, from planning to in-field service.
Fuel flexibility means technology investments made today will not become obsolete. The benefits, both economic and environmental, are massive.
