A simple upgrade to your Wärtsilä engines will significantly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. There is an upgrade for the dual fuel engine types Wärtsilä 20DF, Wärtsilä 34DF, and Wärtsilä 50DF. Each upgrade is designed to optimise the engine. They will reduce methane slip significantly when these dual fuel engines operate on gas mode.
Choose your engine from the list to learn the details of the tailored upgrade packages.
Opt for the Wärtsilä 20DF greenhouse gas reduction upgrade and the methane slip will be reduced in the whole range of engine load. This upgrade includes a so-called “low crevice technology” upgrade in addition to software updates. The software upgrade delivers combustion phasing control, which will make the engine operate optimally according to its ambient and operating conditions.
Any vessel powered by Wärtsilä 34DF engines can reduce its GHG emissions with an easy-to-access control software upgrade. The package is called Wärtsilä 34DF greenhouse gas reduction upgrade, and it will reduce unburned total hydrocarbon (THC) emissions because it will reduce the charge air pressure and air-fuel ratio. The upgrade is based on adaptive combustion phasing control, which optimises engine behaviour according to the ambient and operating conditions.
There are several ways to reduce methane slip from your Wärtsilä 50DF engine. For example:
Based on your needs, Wärtsilä can tailor a solution to fit your exact requirements. The result will be a modernised engine which will perform better overall.
