Wärtsilä 31DF engines for Ponant expedition cruise ship

The 150m-long vessel will operate primarily on LNG during voyages in environmentally sensitive regions including the waters of the Arctic and Antarctic.
The Ponant vessel will have four Wärtsilä 31DF 14-cylinder engines and two 10-cylinder units. It will also have a fuel gas supply system from the company and Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum advanced navigation equipment which can be integrated later with an Eniram proactive energy management system. Wärtsilä acquired Eniram, a performance monitoring company, in 2016.
Charles Gravatte, Ponant general secretary, commented: “We have ordered the building of a clean ship featuring technologies that go beyond current industry-standard environmental regulations. This is why we have chosen a propulsion format with Wärtsilä’s highly efficient 31DF engine running on LNG.”
The Wärtsilä equipment will be supplied in 2020, one year before the cruise vessel is delivered.

French cruise operator Ponant has chosen Wärtsilä 31DF dual-fuel engines for a polar ice-class expedition cruise ship currently under construction at Vard Søviknes in Norway.
