Wärtsilä-Hyundai JV Wins Big Order

Wednesday, August 06, 2008
The FLEX LNG ship will be powered by four Wärtsilä 50DF engines, manufactured by Wärtsilä-Hyundai Engine Company.

The Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engine represents a pioneering industry change from traditional steam turbine machinery to a dual-fuel-electric concept with the benefits of much better operating economy and lower exhaust emissions.
