Marine technology group Wartsila has received an order from Dubai-based E-Marine to upgrade its fleet, which is expected to improve efficiency.

The company will provide comprehensive solutions that are scheduled to be delivered in October.

The company will provide two controlled pitch propeller (CPP) systems with control and fuel efficiency devices.

The contract also includes the delivery of two Wartsila tunnel thrusters, a Wartsila 20 auxiliary engine and class-approved ship design engineering services.

The solutions will be used to upgrade a current cable layer vessel to adhere to the latest operating requirements.

Wartsila Marine Senior Sales Account Manager Sandeep Padhi said: “Being able to deliver everything in line with the tight schedule required by the customer is a challenge that Wartsila 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 Marine Operations general manager Captain Adil Salmanov said: “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 Wartsila solutions are an essential element within that ambition.”

The company has earlier provided a propulsion upgrade for an E-Marine vessel.

Last week, the company received an order to supply Wartsila solutions for new 8,200 deadweight tonnage (dwt) multi-purpose cargo vessel.
