Wärtsilä supplying LNG container ships

First vessels scheduled for 2025

Wärtsilä will supply systems for four new 8200 TEU liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual-fuel container ships being built for Singapore-based Pacific International Lines (PIL) at the Jiangsu New Yangzi Shipbuilding yard in China.

Wärtsilä Fuel Gas Supply System (FGSS) will feed LNG fuel to power both main and auxiliary engines from the vessel’s 7500 m3 membrane tank. The FGSS also includes boil-off gas management and bunkering stations, as well as a Fuel Control System (FCS) completely integrated with Propulsion Control System (PCS) and Alarm Monitoring and Control System (MCS).

Wärtsilä’s MCS and PCS solutions, which form part of the company’s NACOS Automation platform portfolio, will also be supplied to the new container ships.

“We are grateful and pleased to be selected for this project. Our experience and market leading position in the LNG segment was a key factor in securing this new order. Our design also prepares for ammonia fuel, which is an important consideration for these ships,” said Harald Øverland, Sales Manager, Fuel Supply Systems and small scale and bunker vessels, Wärtsilä.

The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery to the yard in early 2024, and the vessels will be delivered progressively commencing in 2025.
