Wärtsilä Fuel efficiency boost

A high efficiency of the main engine is a key factor for the profitable transport of cargo by vessels. An upgrade with the Wärtsilä Fuel efficiency boost enables the fuel costs of two-stroke engines to be reduced considerably while complying with exhaust emission regulations.

A well balanced combination of an increased compression ratio and modified injector nozzles combined with optimized engine tuning parameters allows fuel savings of up to 4% without significantly increasing the NOx emissions.
