Wärtsilä to supply LNG engines for gas vessels

Two LNG vessels of 180,000 cubic meters being built for Total will be equipped with Wärtsilä's dual-fuel engines, which can run on pure LNG.

Wärtsiläs dual-fuel motor

Finnish Wärtsilä continues to broaden the use of its dual-fuel engines. The engine manufacturer announced on Tuesday that it will supply engines for two LNG vessels of 180,000 cubic meters. The ships have been under construction for the past year at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in South Korea.

The ships, expected ready in 2017, will thus become the by-far biggest ships ever equipped with the two-stroke engines Wärtsilä introduced last November and which can run on pure natural gas, LNG. A solution that, among other things, can help ships comply with the coming, increased NOx requirements.
