Eight New Chinese Container Vessels to Be Powered by Wärtsilä Generating Sets

Industrial PRIME | April 11, 2016

Wärtsilä will supply thirty-two Wärtsilä Auxpac 32 generating sets for eight new 13,500 TEU container vessels being built for China Shipping Container Lines.

The total power output from the contracted Wärtsilä engines will exceed 100 MW. The customer’s requirements for the vessels, built at the Hudong-Zhonghua yard in China, were reliability, economic fuel consumption, and high availability.

The Wärtsilä Auxpac 32 is the auxiliary engine version of the Wärtsilä 32 family. It is Wärtsilä’s most powerful Auxpac generating set, aimed at the upper end of the merchant shipping market, notably large container vessels with an auxiliary power need ranging from 2,500 to 4,500 kWe per generating set.

The order was placed in March 2016 with Wärtsilä’s joint venture company, CSSC Wärtsilä Engine (Shanghai) Co Ltd. Delivery of the engines to the yard will commence in the first half of 2017.
