Wärtsilä Engines for Wagenborg Containership

Wednesday, June 15, 2005
Wärtsilä Corporation won a contract to supply two Wärtsilä 46F engines to power an Ice class 1A, 1700 TEU open-top container feeder vessel ordered by the Dutch shipowner Wagenborg Shipping, a member of the Royal Wagenborg group. To be built by the Kinderdijk shipyard of IHC Holland Dredgers BV in the Netherlands, the vessel will measure 547.7 x 77.3 x 25.3 ft. (167 x 23.7 x 7.7 m). Its hatchless design will ensure fast turnround times in port, while a speed of about 21 knots will give short transit times. The vessel is scheduled for delivery in mid 2006 and will be mainly employed in northern European waters.

Wärtsilä is to supply the ship with both the two main engines and a controllable-pitch (CP) propeller. The main engines are six-cylinder Wärtsilä 46F engines each with a maximum continuous power of 7500 kW at 600 rpm. They will drive a single, 5.35m-diameter Lips CP propeller through a combining reduction gearbox. The Lips propeller will be equipped with the latest, compact E-type hub.

The Wärtsilä 46F was in autumn 2004. Initially available in six-, seven-, eight- and nine-cylinder in-line configurations, the Wärtsilä 46F covers a power range of 7,500 to 11,250 kW at 600 rpm. The Wärtsilä 46F has common rail fuel injection as a standard.
