INCORPORATING

WÄRTSILÄ MACHINERY CHOSEN FOR FISHING VESSEL UPGRADE

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 

Wärtsilä is to supply a 12-year old fishing vessel with a Wärtsilä 32 engine, a NOx Reducer (SCR) selective catalytic reduction system, and a shaft generator.

The new engine will replace an existing one from another supplier onboard the Brennholm, a 75m vessel owned by Norway-based operator Brennholm. The installation will take place at the Orskov Yard in Denmark at the end of 2020.

According to measurements carried out in various operating modes, the Wärtsilä engine will save around 13% in fuel costs compared to the vessel’s existing engine. Included in the delivery is a SCR system that will reduce NOx emissions to the atmosphere by approximately 51,000kg per year. These installations will enable the vessel to comply with IMO Tier III regulations. The Wärtsilä scope also includes a shaft generator to produce electrical power for the ship’s network.

“To be competitive in today’s market conditions high efficiency is essential. At the same time, environmental regulations demand sophisticated emission abatement solutions, and we are pleased to be able to meet both these requirements – efficiency and compliance – to reduce the Brennholm’s fuel costs and increase its eco-friendliness,” said Clement Stautland, Account Manager, Wärtsilä Marine.

“We have worked closely with Wärtsilä to develop what we believe is the best solution to meet our operating needs. We thank Wärtsilä for their good cooperation during the project phase, and for the excellent lifecycle support they offer. We are looking forward to having this top-level equipment installed,” said Lars Einar Sandtorv, owner of Brennholm.

"At Orskov Yard the focus is very much on environmentally-friendly solutions, so this fuel and eco-optimised package for the Brennholm is something we are pleased to install,” said Lars Fischer, CEO Orskov Yard.

Wärtsilä is scheduled to deliver its equipment to the yard in October 2020.
