Wärtsilä is working with Dubai-based E-Marine, a specialist operator of cable layer vessels, to upgrade its fleet to achieve greater efficiencies.

As part of this programme Wärtsilä has been contracted to provide a comprehensive scope of solutions, which will be delivered on a fast-track basis. The scope includes two Controlled Pitch Propeller (CPP) systems with control and fuel efficiency devices, two Wärtsilä tunnel thrusters, a Wärtsilä 20 auxiliary engine, and class-approved ship design engineering services. The solutions will upgrade an existing cable layer vessel to meet the latest operating requirements. Wärtsilä had previously provided a propulsion upgrade for an E-Marine vessel.

Sandeep Padhi, Senior Sales Account Manager, Wärtsilä Marine, said: “Being able to deliver everything in line with the tight schedule required by the customer is a challenge that Wärtsilä is capable of meeting. Our track record in this respect speaks for itself. Furthermore, we have a strong support presence in the UAE and throughout the Middle East region to ensure the ongoing reliability and high performance of our solutions.”

“E-Marine is investing heavily in new technologies to ensure that its operating efficiency remains at the highest level possible. This upgrading programme is aimed at delivering the best possible service to our customers, and the Wärtsilä solutions are an essential element within that ambition,” said Capt Adil Salmanov, GM Marine Operations, E-Marine.
