Tuesday, May 31, 2005
Wärtsilä supplied the first of its new Wärtsilä Auxpac 20 generating sets in April. The customer is Shanghai Zhenhua Port Machinery Co. Ltd in China and the generating sets will be installed in a heavy-lifting ship being built at the Jing Jiang Eastern shipyard for Guangzhou Salvage Bureau. Wärtsilä will also supply the vessel's three main engines and steerable thrusters, ordered in 2004. The vessel will be completed in April 2006. Introduced in September 2004, Wärtsilä Auxpac is a standard, pre-commissioned generating set designed to provide auxiliary electricity onboard marine vessels. The sales of the new product have made a strong start and Wärtsilä has already received orders for more than 200 Wärtsilä Auxpac 20 generating sets.
