Wärtsilä launches Wärtsilä Sea-Master system for monitoring the condition of tail shaft equipment. The Wärtsilä Sea-Master system uses digital technology to monitor shaft bearings and seals to help customers maximise uptime and lower lifecycle costs of vessel shaft lines.
A brand new medium speed engine featuring the most advanced technology is today launched on the market by Wärtsilä in conjunction with the Nor-Shipping 2015 exhibition in Oslo, Norway. The Wärtsilä 31 engine has significantly reduced maintenance requirements, while raising fuel efficiency, fuel flexibility, and operational optimization to totally new levels that are far beyond anything else currently available. Its fuel consumption efficiency in its diesel version is as low as 165g/kWh.
The Wärtsilä 31 engine is designed to serve a variety of vessel types requiring main engine propulsion in the 4.2 to 9.8 MW power range. In the offshore sector, the Wärtsilä 31 is ideally suited for AHTS´s, OSV´s, drilling and semi-submersible vessels, where the requirements are for operational flexibility, high power density, long intervals between overhauls, and high levels of safety. Similarly, in the cruise and ferry sector the Wärtsilä 31 enables owners and operators to trim fuel expenses while maintaining high standards in environmental performance. Within the merchant fleet, the Wärtsilä 31 is designed for applications as a main engine for small to medium tankers, bulk carriers and container vessels.
