Wärtsilä Engines for Russian Icebreaker

Wednesday, April 14, 2004
Wärtsilä won an order for four engines for installation on the first Sakhalin ice breaker to be built by the Kvaerner Masa-Yards shipyard in Finland. The vessel will be equipped with three 8-cylinder Wärtsilä 38 main engines in diesel electric drive and an additional 6-cylinder Wärtsilä 20 engine to power a harbor/emergency generating set. Kvaerner Masa-Yards has been commissioned to design and build the icebreaker by the Russian Far-Eastern Shipping Company PLC (FESCO). Headquartered in Vladivostok, FESCO is the largest shipping company in Eastern Russia. Its strategy is to be the leading operator of icebreakers and ice class vessels in East Asia. Scheduled for delivery to FESCO in 2005, the 4,000 dwt vessel will be 100 m long and have a shaft output of 13 MW. The Wärtsilä 38 engines will each have an output of 5800 kW at 600 rpm and the Wärtsilä 20 engine will have an output of 1080 kW at 1000 rpm. The engines are scheduled for delivery to Kvaerner Masa-Yards during autumn 2004.
