Wärtsilä Unveils Four New Container Feeder Designs at Nor-Shipping

Finnish corporation Wärtsilä is launching a series of four new container feeder vessel designs at this year’s Nor-Shipping exhibition being held in Oslo from June 2 to 5.

The designs are based upon achieving optimal fuel efficiency, while being compliant with all known current and future environmental regulations.

“The four ship designs, namely the WSD80-1500, WSD80-2400, WSD80-4000 and WSD84-2400, feature exceptionally low and best-in-class fuel consumption. Each design is available in three versions; ‘conventional’ using HFO as fuel, ‘environmental’ using HFO with exhaust cleaning scrubber systems, and ‘clean’ with dual-fuel capability and running mainly on liquefied natural gas (LNG),” the company said.

Since container feeder vessels operate largely within existing or anticipated ECA (Emissions Control Areas) or SECA (Sulphur Emissions Control Areas), environmentally compliant designs are extremely relevant. Therefore, the company put a focus on fuel flexibility a main feature of these latest Wärtsilä designs along with fuel efficiency, cargo capacity, systems redundancy and the lowest possible levels of exhaust emissions.

“Wärtsilä is a global supplier of efficient, reliable, and environmentally sustainable ship design solutions for the merchant shipping sector. Our unique expertise, knowledge, and worldwide presence are essential factors in turning the customer’s vision into reality, thereby maximising their profits and asset values,” says Riku-Pekka Hägg, Vice President, Wärtsilä Ship Design.

More than 4,000 vessels have been built using Wärtsilä ship designs worldwide.
