Wärtsilä to supply its low emission technology to ADNOC

Wärtsilä has been selected as a supplier to provide four Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel auxiliary engines for the sixth and final vessel in a series of six newbuild 175,000 cubic metre (m3) LNG carrier vessels through its joint venture firm, CWEC.

The Wärtsilä 34DF engine, along with the Wärtsilä greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction package, was chosen for its capacity to give both increased performance and reduced emissions. Wärtsilä will provide a comparable range of options for the other five vessels in the series.

These LNG carriers are reportedly being built for ADNOC Logistics & Services plc., a global leader in energy marine logistics, at the Jiangnan Shipyard in China.

Rajan Khanna – Head of Sales for Middle East at Wärtsilä, said: “We are honoured to have been selected to supply engines for this important series of six modern LNG carriers.

“The Wärtsilä 34DF engine will help ADNOC Logistics & Services’ LNG carriers in reducing energy consumption, fewer emissions, and lower operating costs, and when operating on LNG has minimised methane slip.”

Wärtsilä will also supply the shaft seals for these LNG carriers, which are planned to be delivered in 2025 and 2026.

This month, Wärtsilä announced that it would deliver cargo handling and fuel supply systems for four new 40,000 m3 gas carrier vessels.

Furthermore, Wärtsilä announced it will supply cargo handling and LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) fuel supply systems for a new Medium Gas Carrier (MGC) vessel being built for Turkish ship owner Pasco Gas.
