Orders For Low-Speed Engines For Wärtsilä

Friday, November 02, 2001
Wärtsilä reports orders for Sulzer RT-flex diesel engines for two multi-purpose carriers to be built at Shanghai Shipyard in China. The order consists of low-speed marine engines to have common-rail fuel injection. These engines reduce emissions and they lack visible exhaust smoke at any operating speed. The customer is Chinese-Polish Joint Stock Shipping Co (Chipolbrok). For each vessel, Wärtsilä will also supply three Wärtsilä 20 auxiliary engines.

Sulzer RT-flex is the world's first low-speed marine engine to have common-rail fuel injection. In the course of this year, Wärtsilä has received orders for totally six Sulzer RT-flex engines. The first of these has already been delivered in the bulk carrier Cypsym Centennial.
