Wartsila Engines Selected To Power 2 New Bulk Carriers And Re-Engine A Cargo Carrier
Two new bulk carriers ordered by the principals of Lasco Shipping Co.
of Portland will be equipped with Wartsila Diesel's Vasa 22/26 auxiliary engines. The 64,000-dwt vessels are under construction at Jiangnan shipyard in Shanghai.
The contract includes three Wartsila Vasa 4R22/26 auxiliary engines per vessel, each developing 540 kw at 720 rpm. The auxiliaries will burn the same 380 cSt heavy fuel as the main engines. The auxiliary engines for the first vessel will be delivered in early 1989, and for the second, at the end of the same year.
The Vasa 22/26 selected for the Lasco Shipping vessels is a powerful new medium-speed auxiliary engine which is well-suited for power production in different types of vessels.
Rigid design components combined with an optimized combustion process guarantees reliable and economical operation at all loads, even on the lowest grade heavy fuels.
The Vasa 22/26 has a cylinder bore of 220 mm and a piston stroke of 260 mm. The output range is 540- 3,000 kw at speeds ranging from 720 to 1,100 rpm. The Vasa 22/26 is manufactured in 4-, 6-, and 8-cylinder in-line versions and 8-, 12-, and 16-cylinder V-versions.
The 7,500-dwt dry cargo carrier Rosadaniela, owned by Transpapel Naviera C.A. of Venezuela, will be refitted with new propulsion machinery.
The vessel will have its existing main engine replaced with one eight-cylinder, 3,300-kw Wartsila Diesel heavy fuel engine type Vasa 32. It will also be fitted with a new reduction gear, a new CP-propeller and new remote control system.
Wartsila Diesel will supply all the equipment and be in charge of both project planning and management.
The vessel will be refitted by the Venezuelan company Tenaval C.A. at the Dianca shipyard in Puerto Cabello, Venezuela. Re-engining is scheduled for completion by the end of August of this year.
Wartsila Diesel is a leading designer and manufacturer of medium- speed fuel engines in the 500 to 16,000-kw range. The company also delivers complete propulsion packages for different vessel types and sizes.
