De to RoPax færger af Superstar klassen, som det italienske Grimaldi Group har bestilt til Finnlines, vil få Wärtsilä 46F motorer. Wärtsilä skal desuden også levere hybridsystemerne til de to færger.
“This investment is aimed at energy efficiency and emissions reduction and is part of our intention to lead the development of energy-efficient transport services in the Baltic Sea region. We have Wärtsilä solutions in most of our ships, so we are familiar with the efficiency and reliability they offer.”
Mikael Lindholm, Head of the Newbuilding Department Finnlines.
Wärtsilä skal levere motorerne og udstyret til det kinesiske værft China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Weihai) i foråret 2022. Færgerne forventes leveret i 2023.
“High efficiency and sustainable operations are increasingly becoming the key focus areas for ferry operators around the world, and our range of products, systems, and integrated solutions are designed and developed to achieve the highest levels of performance in these areas. This latest Finnlines order is further evidence of the success of this approach. These new ferries will be among the most eco-friendly ferries of their type, setting new standards for sustainability and energy efficiency.”
