Among the applications for

Wartsila diesels are main engines in ships for both geared and diesel-electric propulsion, auxil- iary engines for vessels, and gen- erator systems for stationary power plants. The Vasa 32 pro- vides an excellent combination as both main and auxiliary engine in the same ship, such as in car/ passenger ferries. This provides simplified maintenance routines and the advantage that all the engines can be operated on bunk- er oil.

The Nohab F30 is widely used in offshore vessels, and more than one million bhp is presently in operation on such vessels and on oil rigs.
