Finnish technology group Wärtsilä is working closely with Dubai-based E-Marine, a specialist operator of cable layer vessels, which is currently upgrading its fleet to achieve greater levels of operational efficiency. The project, due for completion in October this year, involves the retrofit of two controlled pitch propeller (CPP) systems with control and fuel efficiency devices, two Wärtsilä tunnel thrusters and a Wärtsilä 20 auxiliary engine.
“E-Marine is investing heavily in new technologies to ensure that its operating efficiency remains at the highest level possible. This upgrading programme is aimed at delivering the best possible service to our customers, and the Wärtsilä solutions are an essential element within that ambition,” says Capt. Adil Salmanov, General Manager, Marine Operations, E-Marine.
