Wärtsilä secures a deal to equip ADNOC Logistics' new LNG carrier with its eco-efficient Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel auxiliary engines. These engines, part of a series of six vessels, promise heightened performance and reduced emissions, supporting the aim for energy efficiency and lowered operational costs.



Wärtsilä, in partnership with CWEC (Shanghai) Company Ltd., is set to furnish four Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel auxiliary engines for the sixth and final vessel among a series of six newly constructed LNG carrier vessels. This selection aligns with the vessels' objective of achieving superior performance coupled with reduced emissions, facilitated by Wärtsilä's innovative technology.

These LNG carriers, currently under construction at China's Jiangnan Shipyard for ADNOC Logistics & Services plc., a significant global player in energy maritime logistics, will benefit from Wärtsilä's engines. Mr. Rajan Khanna, Head of Sales for the Middle East at Wärtsilä, highlighted the engines' role in curbing energy consumption, minimizing emissions, and ensuring cost-effective operations. The use of LNG further minimizes methane emissions, enhancing environmental stewardship.

In addition to the engines, Wärtsilä is supplying shaft seals for these LNG carriers, slated for delivery between 2025 and 2026. The company's commitment to the region extends beyond technology, with over 300 employees and a workshop in the United Arab Emirates, reinforcing its support for customers in the area.

The selection of Wärtsilä's engines for this crucial series of LNG carriers underscores the company's commitment to enhancing efficiency and sustainability within the maritime sector. The joint venture's delivery of these innovative engines aligns seamlessly with Wärtsilä's dedication to driving the shipping industry toward a decarbonized and eco-friendly future.


Wärtsilä's collaboration to equip ADNOC Logistics' LNG carriers with advanced, eco-efficient engines is a testament to its pioneering role in sustainable shipping solutions. The strategic deployment of Wärtsilä's 34DF dual-fuel auxiliary engines not only signifies a technological milestone but also amplifies the collective effort towards cleaner, more efficient maritime operations. This collaboration underscores Wärtsilä's dedication to revolutionizing the maritime industry's journey toward a greener future.
