Finnish technology group Wärtsilä is to supply a newly updated propulsion control system for Maersk Tankers’ six 110,000 dwt LR2 newbuildings.

The order with Wärtsilä was booked in the first quarter of 2018 and includes an advanced alarm and control system.

The Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum automation package is designed to optimise main engine propulsion efficiency to deliver fuel savings and lower operational costs. The energy saving features include power management, and logic for cargo overview and remote control.

Wärtsilä is scheduled to deliver the equipment to the yard in line with the newbuilding programme at the Dalian Shipbuilding yard in China. The plan is to deliver the vessels over a period of two years with the first vessels entering the fleet in 2020.
