The Wärtsilä 14 is the most compact engine in its power range in the marine market, and serves both propulsion and auxiliary genset applications in the global marine and offshore markets. The engine is an integral element within Wärtsilä’s Smart Marine vision for the future of shipping, whereby optimal efficiency, safety, and environmental sustainability will be the key pillars in achieving and maintaining profitable operations for ship owners and operators around the world.
The Wärtsilä 14 high-speed engine is available in 12- and 16-cylinder configurations, having a power output between 755 and 1340 kWm in mechanical propulsion, and between 675 and 1155 kWe in auxiliary generating set and diesel-electric propulsion applications.
The advantages of fuel flexibility in a small unit, also used for generating set applications
With the Wärtsilä 20DF, Wärtsilä is extending the benefits of dual fuel (DF) technology to cover the entire power range. The engine offers ship owners and operators a compact unit that brings all the advantages of fuel flexibility to auxiliary applications, such as generating sets or as the prime mover in smaller vessels.
Based on the well proven and reliable Wärtsilä 20 diesel engine introduced in the early 1990s, fuel flexibility means the engine can be optimized for constant speed generating sets, as well as variable speed mechanical drives, for main engine applications.
