Wärtsilä Generator System To Deliver Fuel Savings for LNG Carriers



The technology group Wärtsilä will supply four shaft generator systems to provide power take-off from the main engines for two LNG Carrier vessels, according to the company’s release.

Extensive track record in supplying shaft generator systems

The ships are being built at the Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) shipyard in Korea for the Greek ship management service provider Capital Gas Ship Management Corp. The order with Wärtsilä was placed in August 2021.

With installations in more than 600 vessels, Wärtsilä has the shipping industry’s most extensive track record in supplying shaft generator systems.

By enabling power take-off, the systems allow the main engine to generate electricity for onboard use, thereby reducing fuel consumption, lowering emission levels, and improving both the vessels Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) and future Carbon Intensity index (CII).

  • Each of the two 174,000 cbm capacity vessels will be fitted with two 1.9 MW Wärtsilä shaft generators.
  • The equipment is scheduled for delivery to the yard in 2022.
