MarineLink

Wärtsilä inked an agreement to supply propulsion control system and advanced alarm and control system, the Nacos PCS/MCS Platinum, for Maersk Tankers' six 110 DWT LR2 newbuildings being built at the Dalian Shipbuilding yard in China. The first ship is expected in 2020, with the balance of the six delivered over two years. The Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum automation package is a fully integrated system designed to optimize main engine propulsion efficiency to deliver fuel savings and lower operational costs. The energy saving features include power management, and logic for cargo overview and remote control. The updated system features fewer parts than earlier versions as well as console mounting possibility.
