Wärtsilä receives large retrofit order for new cylinder lubricating system

Wärtsilä engine cylinder lubricating system retrofits for 21 vessels will cut lubricating oil consumption and engine operating costs.

Wärtsilä won an order in November 2007 from the German shipowner Reederei Claus-Peter Offen for retrofitting 21 ships with the Retrofit Pulse Lubricating System. The new cylinder lubricating system, which will save costs, will be fitted to all Wärtsilä RTA96C engines in the owner’s fleet of container ships.
