Wärtsilä, a leader in marine technology, has announced a significant collaboration with ADNOC Logistics and Services to provide its highly fuel-efficient and low-emission technology for a new LNG carrier. This deal includes supplying four Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel auxiliary engines for the final vessel in a series of six newbuild 175,000 m3 LNG carrier vessels, marking a continued commitment to sustainable maritime operations.
Innovative and Sustainable Solutions
The Wärtsilä 34DF engines, renowned for their high performance and lower emissions, are part of a comprehensive package that also includes the Wärtsilä greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction package. This technology was selected for its ability to provide superior operational efficiency and a significant reduction in the vessel’s environmental footprint. The engines, known for minimizing methane slip, will ensure that ADNOC’s LNG carriers operate with reduced energy consumption, fewer emissions, and lower operating costs.
Rajan Khanna, Head of Sales for Middle East at Wärtsilä, expressed pride in the collaboration: “We are honoured to have been selected to supply engines for this important series of six modern LNG carriers. The Wärtsilä 34DF engine will help ADNOC Logistics & Services’ LNG carriers in reducing energy consumption, fewer emissions, and lower operating costs, and when operating on LNG has minimized methane slip.”
