Wärtsilä Repowers Italian Ferry
The Italian ferry company Moby S.p.A has chosen Wärtsilä to carry out the repowering of its passenger ferry MV Moby Zaza, the final vessel in a series of repowering projects that started with MV Moby Corse and continued with MV Moby Kiss.
The scope of the agreement covers equipment as well as commissioning and systems integration. The Wärtsilä equipment provided include four new auxiliary generating sets with digital automatic voltage regulators, seawater systems with complete cooling circuit that allows operating in high sea water temperatures, exhaust gas system silencers and fuel systems.
The new, state-of-the-art equipment will extend the lifecycle of the installation. As the existing 30-year-old equipment is replaced, the vessel's environmental footprint is considerably reduced. Wärtsilä will provide technical support to the yard in the equipment installation and systems integration phase as well as in the on-site commissioning and sea trials to ensure that all systems perform optimally.
