Engineering and power generation company Wärtsilä said it will supply main engines to eight container vessels for China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL), part of the China Shipping Group (CSG).
The company will provide its seven-cylinder RT-flex68TD common rail two-stroke engines for CSCL’s 4,700 teu vessels. It will also supply a package of support services for the order, Wärtsilä said.
The support services include RT-flex engine training at the Wärtsilä Services facilities in Shanghai using an RT-flex electronic simulator. A single RT-flex rail unit will be made to enhance the hands-on basic operational training courses.
The ships will be built at the Jiangnan Changxing shipyard, Shanghai.
