The introduction of the new Wärtsilä 46DF engine emphasises Wärtsilä's leading position in dual-fuel engine technology. Compared to any other alternative currently available on the market its specific fuel consumption is lower, output is remarkably higher, and lifecycle costs are extremely attractive.
With the introduction of its new Wärtsilä 46DF engine, Wärtsilä, the marine industry's leading provider of innovative products, solutions and services, has once again raised the technology bar in the dual-fuel engine market. At the same time, it has strengthened its offering in the medium-speed engine sector.
The fuel flexible Wärtsilä 46DF engine has been specifically developed for the high-output market segment, including cruise ships and ferries, merchant vessels, LNG carriers and FSRUs (Floating Storage and Regasification Unit), and offshore vessels and platforms, and is capable of operating on natural gas, heavy fuel oil, or marine diesel oil. This fuel flexibility enables reduced operational expenses, compliance with the most stringent emission standards, and full redundancy to ensure uninterrupted operation.
