Wärtsilä said it will supply a propulsion and power package for a new 75-meter-long fishing trawler being built at the Karstensen shipyard in Denmark for Scottish owners and operators Wiseman Fishing Co and Northbay Fishing Co.

The vessel will feature a Wärtsilä 31 main engine, two Wärtsilä 14 power generating sets, a gearbox and a controllable pitch propeller (CPP), the combination of which represents the latest engine and power generation technology. The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery to the yard in spring 2021.

In designing the trawler, the aim has been to achieve the best power density, the most efficient performance, and the lowest possible emission levels in order to achieve minimal environmental impact.

"The Wärtsilä 31 engine has outstanding fuel efficiency and we have installed it in several other of our newbuilds. The Wärtsilä 14 is an exciting newcomer for us, and we are confident that it is the right choice for this and possible future ships that we build," said Kent Damgaard, Director, Karstensen shipyard.
