The technology group Wärtsilä will supply the LNG Fuel Gas Supply System, Propulsion Control System and Alarm Monitoring and Control System for four new 8200 TEU LNG dual-fuel container ships being built for Singapore-based Pacific International Lines (PIL) at the Jiangsu New Yangzi Shipbuilding yard in China. The orders were included in Wärtsilä’s order book in Q4 2022.
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).
Building upon decades of design, engineering experience and expertise in ship alarm, monitoring and control systems, Wärtsilä’s MCS and PCS solutions, which form part of the company’s NACOS Automation platform portfolio, will provide the new container ships with the highest levels of quality and reliability, as well as unprecedented ease-of-use.
The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery to the yard in early 2024, and the vessels will be delivered progressively commencing in 2025.
