Wärtsilä has been contracted to provide support to Dubai-based E-Marine, which is currently upgrading its fleet of cable layer vessels to achieve greater efficiencies.

The scope includes two controlled pitch propeller 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.

“Being able to deliver everything in line with the tight schedule required by the customer is a challenge that Wärtsilä is capable of meeting,” said Sandeep Padhi, senior sales account manager, Wärtsilä Marine.

“Our track record in this respect speaks for itself. Furthermore, we have a strong support presence in the UAE and throughout the Middle East to ensure the ongoing reliability and high performance of our solutions,” he added.

“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,” added Captain Adil Salmanov, general manager, marine operations, E-Marine.

The order was placed in May and delivery is scheduled for October this year. Wärtsilä has previously provided a propulsion upgrade for an E-Marine vessel.
