Propulsion for RV erator selectable modes to ? ne-tune trimming response www.twindisc.com based on sea conditions and vessel loading—freeing Wärtsilä will supply an ultra-silent propulsion package for a new research vessel to be built for the Faroe Islands Marine Research Institute.
The vessel is being built at the MEST shipyard in the Faroes.
The ability to create a propulsion solution that signi? cantly limits underwater radiated noise (URN) and which meets the DNV Silent
R notation, was a key factor in the award of this contract to Wärtsilä. By enabling the vessel to sail with very little URN, the Wärtsilä solution will facilitate the ability of the research person- nel onboard to carry out their tasks with greater effectiveness. The 54m ship will be powered by a pair of eight-cylinder Wärtsilä 20 engines and will have a silent Wärtsilä ? xed pitch pro- peller and complete shaft line. The solution is very compact, which results in reduced acoustic signals. www.wartsila.com
