Typical Application Areas
The Wärtsilä 20 is suitable for a broad range of applications. Thanks to its modular and compact design, the engine can be optimised for constant speed generating sets, as well as for variable speed with main engine mechanical drive applications.
With its outstanding power-to-weight and power-to-space ratios, the Wärtsilä 20 provides various application options for different types of vessel. For example, in smaller ships, such as small cargo vessels, ferries or tug boats, it can be used as the mechanical drive prime mover. The Wärtsilä 20 is also an excellent generator set drive in both small and large vessels.
Its flexibility in engine support arrangements provides an optimal foundation, either rigid or flexible, for numerous applications in both marine and land-based power solutions.
