Wärtsilä Refit For Fishing Vessel

By Mike Brezonick20 November 2019

Wärtsilä announced it will supply a 12-year old fishing vessel with a Wärtsilä 32 engine, a NOx Reducer (SCR) selective catalytic reduction system and a shaft generator. The new engine will replace the existing diesel onboard the Brennholm, a 75 m vessel owned by Norway-based operator Brennholm AS. The installation will take place at the Orskov Yard in Denmark at the end of 2020.

According to measurements carried out in various operating modes, Wärtsilä said the new engine will save approximately 13% in fuel costs compared to the vessel’s existing engine. Wärtsilä said its NOx Reducer system will reduce nitrogen oxide emissions to the atmosphere by approximately 51,000 kg per year. These installations will enable the vessel to comply with the IMO’s Tier III regulations. The Wärtsilä scope also includes a shaft generator to produce electrical power for the ship’s network.

“We have worked closely with Wärtsilä to develop what we believe is the best solution to meet our operating needs,” said Lars Einar Sandtorv, owner of Brennholm. “We are looking forward to having this top-level equipment installed,” says Lars Einar Sandtorv, Owner of Brennholm.

Wärtsilä is scheduled to deliver its equipment to the yard in October 2020.
