The company will deliver main engines for a mega yacht, owned by Genting Hong Kong.
The vessel of Endeavor series will be the world's largest expedition mega yacht with ice class certification, able to operate in polar region waters.
Four 6-cylinder Wärtsilä 32 engines combined with Wärtsilä NOx Reducer (NOR) systems will provide the electrical power for the ship. The system is fully compliant with the IMO Tier III exhaust emission regulations. The equipment is scheduled to be delivered to MV WERFTEN yard in Wismar (also owned by Genting Hong Kong) in 2018. There is an option for an additional two vessels in Endeavor class.
"This is an exciting newbuild project and we are proud to have been selected as a supplier. The Wärtsilä 32 engine is extremely well proven and features excellent reliability and easy maintenance, both of which were important factors in its selection," Lars Anderson, Vice President, Engine Sales, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions, said.
Axel Rothe, Vice President, Procurement and Logistics, MV WERFTEN, commented; "We have enjoyed a good relationship with Wärtsilä for a number of years and we know and trust their products. The successful development of this ship is due to good cooperation and communication between all the project partners."
