Finnish marine technology and services company Wärtsilä last week co-hosted an Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST) UAE branch technical meeting. The event showcased the capabilities of its recently acquired Trident division, and the underwater maintenance and repair services it provides, as well as the new Wärtsilä 14 high-speed engine, developed in collaboration with the Liebherr Group.
The engine design is in line with Wärtsilä’s vision for the green ships of the future and complies with global environmental regulations, including being supplied with an innovative NOx reduction (NOR) system to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. The Wärtsilä 14 main engine is considered well suited for tugs, fishing boats and smaller sea-going vessel and is also suitable for auxiliary power generation requirements for larger merchant ships.
“Having the Wärtsilä 14 engine and underwater services in our portfolio enables us to offer an even wider solution range which greatly improves the total efficiency of our customers operations and enhances environmental sustainability,” said Rajan Khanna, Head of Wärtsilä Marine Business in the Middle East.
