Cosco Chooses Wärtsilä Engine

Cosco Chooses Wärtsilä Engines

Five new 14,500 TEU container ships being built for Cosco (China Ocean Shipping Group) will be powered by twenty Wärtsilä Auxpac 32 generating sets, the Finnish engine maker said in a release.

The ships are under construction at the Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group yard in China, which is a subsidiary of the China State Shipbuilding Corporation.

The order was placed in January, 2015 with Wärtsilä’s joint venture company, Wärtsilä Yuchai Engine Co. Ltd (WYEC).  It is the first order for generating sets placed with WYEC since the formation of the company. Delivery of the engines will commence in mid-2016.

“This is a very important order that marks the re-establishment of Wärtsilä generating sets within the container vessel market,” said Roger Holm, Senior Vice President, Wärtsilä Ship Power.

This latest order comes one day after Shell chose Wärtsilä DF dual-fuel engines to power its specialized LNG Bunker vessel to be built at the STX Offshore & Shipbuilding Company yard in South Korea.
