WÄRTSILÄ PROPULSION CONTROL FOR MAERSK TANKERS NEWBUILDINGS

Thursday, September 13, 2018 

Wärtsilä is to supply a newly updated propulsion control system, as well as its Nacos PCS/MCS Platinum alarm and control system, for Maersk Tankers’ six 110 DWT LR2 newbuildings.

The Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum automation package is a fully integrated system designed to optimise main engine propulsion efficiency to deliver fuel savings and lower operational costs. The energy saving features include power management, and logic for cargo overview and remote control. The updated system features fewer parts than earlier versions as well as console mounting possibility.

Wärtsilä is scheduled to deliver the equipment to the yard in line with the newbuilding programme at the Dalian Shipbuilding yard in China. The plan is to deliver the vessels over a period of two years with the first vessels entering the fleet in 2020. 

“Reliability, state-of-the-art technology, full lifecycle support, and a lower cost of ownership; these are the defining reasons for the success of Wärtsilä propulsion control systems. We are, of course, extremely proud that these modern vessels will feature Wärtsilä solutions,” said Kjeld Dittmann, Managing Director, Wärtsilä Lyngsø Marine.
