Wärtsilä signs with Princess Cruise Lines for long-term service of seven cruise ships powered by Wärtsilä 46 common-rail engines

The broad scope of services covers technical management and logistics support, spare parts for scheduled engine maintenance, workshop services, an on-board technical advisor during major overhauls, annual training of the engine room crew, continuous condition monitoring of equipment and reporting, and bi-monthly technical visits to each vessel.

"This agreement optimises the maintenance schedules for these seven vessels, and provides the customer with technical expertise at a fixed budget price. In particular, Wärtsilä's deep know-how in the field of common-rail technology was a key factor in the award of this contract," says Andy Edwards, Vice President, Strategic Accounts.

Wärtsilä is a market leader in common-rail technology for electronically-controlled low-speed marine engines. This technology provides a high degree of flexibility in engine settings to give lower fuel consumption, very low minimum running speeds, smokeless operation at all running speeds, and outstanding control of exhaust emissions. Furthermore, the integrated redundancy of the engines ensures high reliability.
