Wärtsilä reports it has achieved a new tech benchmark with the introduction of a hybrid installation for a bulk carrier, reportedly a maritime first.

The system will be installed on the M/V Paolo Topic, a bulk carrier built at Onomichi Dockyard in Japan and managed by Marfin Management S.A.M.

Wärtsilä's hybrid power module, the Wärtsilä HY, is designed to deliver seamless integration and control of the technologies to be installed, with the ship's various existing power production systems. The integrated solution is expected to deliver a reduction in fuel consumption and maintenance costs.
