The technology group Wartsila’s experience and track-record in delivering efficient and sustainable solutions for fishing sector vessels has again been recognised with another important order. The Danish shipbuilder Karstensens Shipyard has awarded Wartsila the contract to deliver the main propulsion machinery for an 89 metres long pelagic purser/trawler being built for Faroe Islands based Christian i Grotinum, a leading North Atlantic fishing group. The order was booked in July this year. Karstensens Shipyard specialises in designing and building sophisticated fishing vessels, and this new ship will be the largest built by the yard to date. It will be powered by a Wärtsilä 31 main engine, which has received recognition from Guinness World Records as being the world’s most efficient 4-stroke diesel engine.

In addition to the main engine, Wärtsilä will also supply a selective catalytic reduction system for reducing nitrogen oxide emissions, the shaft generator, a two-speed gear with power take-off function, the shafting, a controlled pitch propeller, and Wärtsilä’s ProTouch propulsion control system. The equipment is scheduled for delivery to the yard in mid-2021, and the vessel is expected to be delivered in January 2022.
