Wärtsilä Marine re-powering projects

When a vessel’s engines are reaching the end of their lifecycle, a re-powering solution is needed to keep the vessel in service. There may also be a need to convert a vessel to meet new business opportunities, extend its lifecycle, modernise to meet regulations or perform larger repairs.

Wärtsilä Marine re-powering projects range from lifecycle extension, modernisation, and major repairs to modification of the vessel’s purpose to increase business opportunities.

    Technical info

    A project typically consists of modernising the machinery, including engines and/or other equipment, construction work, engineering, system integration and commissioning.

    Each project is tailor-made based on the customer needs. The scope varies from equipment delivery to complete engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) solutions.

    Wärtsilä’s efficient delivery, installation, start-up and commissioning ensure that the vessel is back in operation with minimal downtime.

      • Open doors to new markets and new business opportunities
      • Extend the lifecycle of your vessel with minimal downtime
      • Improve fuel oil efficiency, environmental efficiency, performance, reliability and safety
      • Increase the value of the vessel and reduce operating costs
    The solution is suitable for all marine installations.
