Finnish marine technology company Wärtsilä said its updated propulsion control system will deliver bunker fuel savings for Maersk Tankers’ six LR2 newbuilds.
The Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum automation package is designed to optimise main engine propulsion efficiency which saves fuel and includes other energy-saving features such as power management, the company said in a statement Thursday.
Wärtsilä is scheduled to deliver the equipment to Dalian Shipbuilding yard in China where Maersk Tankers’ newbuilds are being built. Maersk's order with Wärtsilä was booked in the first quarter of 2018.
The plan is to deliver the vessels over a period of two years with the first vessels entering Maersk's fleet in 2020, the company said.
