Wärtsilä will supply a propulsion and power package for a new 75 metres long fishing trawler.
This ship will be build in Denmark at the Karstensen shipyard for Scottish owners and operators Wiseman fishing and Northbay fishing.
The vessel will feature a Wärtsilä 31 main engine, two Wärtsilä 14 power generating sets, a gearbox and a controllable pitch propeller (CPP), the combination of which represents the latest engine and power generation technology.
“It is always satisfying to receive repeat orders, since they are the best endorsement of customer satisfaction. We have earlier provided engines and propulsion solutions for both Karstensen and Wiseman Fishing, so it is an honour that they have once again put their trust in us for this new vessel,” said Henrik Wilhelms, director offshore and special vessels at Wärtsilä.
“The Wärtsilä 31 engine has outstanding fuel efficiency and we have installed it in several other of our newbuilds. The Wärtsilä 14 is an exciting newcomer for us, and we are confident that it is the right choice for this and possible future ships that we build,” said Kent Damgaard, director, Karstensen shipyard.
