    Technical info

    Classification societies require five and ten-year inspections. Additionally to the support related to these obligatory Controllable Pitch Propeller (CPP) inspections, Wärtsilä provides you also maintenance guidelines for the entire life-cycle of your vessel’s CPP-system. Wärtsilä Class-approved propulsion conditioning monitoring system, for instance, could increase the time between overhauls. Energy Efficiency engineering team can advise the possibilities to increase the lifespan and efficiency of the CPP blades

    The service solution for CPP systems provided by Wärtsilä includes:

    • Inspection and maintenance
    • Propulsion control system upgrades
    • Propeller repair and refurbishment
    • Energy efficiency improvements
    • Product training and the Wärtsilä Land &
      Sea Academy (WLSA)
    • Other OEM services
    Application
    All vessels having Controllable pitch propellers from Wärtsilä or other OEMs.

    Wärtsilä to provide latest engine and power generation technology for new Scottish fishing trawler

    by Wärtsilä Corporation | Apr 09, 2020

    The technology group Wärtsilä will supply a propulsion and power package for a new 75 metres long fishing trawler. The ship is being built at the Karstensen shipyard in Denmark for Scottish owners and operators Wiseman Fishing Co and Northbay Fishing Co. Both the yard and Wiseman Fishing are longstanding customers of Wärtsilä. This latest order with Wärtsilä was placed in March.The vessel will feature a Wärtsilä 31 main engine, two Wärtsilä 14 power generating sets, a gearbox and a controllable pitch propeller (CPP), the combination of which represents the latest engine and power generation technology. In designing the trawler, the aim has been to achieve the best power density, the most efficient performance, and the lowest possible emission levels in order to achieve minimal environmental impact.

    “It is always satisfying to receive repeat orders, since they are the best endorsement of customer satisfaction. We have earlier provided engines and propulsion solutions for both Karstensen and Wiseman Fishing, so it is an honour that they have once again put their trust in us for this new vessel. Fishing is necessary for feeding the world’s growing population, and while fishing operations are very diverse, the one common ambition is to be even more sustainable. It is important for us to know that this project supports the industry’s sustainability,” says Henrik Wilhelms, Director Offshore and Special vessels at Wärtsilä.

    “The Wärtsilä 31 engine has outstanding fuel efficiency and we have installed it in several other of our newbuilds. The Wärtsilä 14 is an exciting newcomer for us, and we are confident that it is the right choice for this and possible future ships that we build,” says Kent Damgaard, Director, Karstensen shipyard.

    The Wärtsilä 31 engine has been recognised by Guinness World Records as being the world’s most efficient 4-stroke diesel engine, while the Wärtsilä 14 high-speed engine is the marine industry’s most compact engine in its power range. Both the Wärtsilä 31 and the Wärtsilä 14 are integral elements within Wärtsilä’s Smart Marine vision for the future of shipping, whereby optimal efficiency, safety, and environmental sustainability will be the key pillars in achieving and maintaining profitable operations for ship owners and operators.

    The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery to the yard in spring 2021.
