Coastal and inland propulsion systems are specialized for vessels operating on local waterways, and for coastal and fishing vessels. Wärtsilä has considerable expertise in designing propulsion systems for large, fast luxury yachts and government-owned ships with propeller diameters of up to 3500 mm, as well as for various special vessels, all with their own characteristics. Wärtsilä supplies fixed pitch propellers, nozzles, and propeller shaft assemblies complete with stern tube systems as part of the propulsion equipment for such vessels..
Wärtsilä operates in close co-operation with its customers in order to optimise product performance to meet demands and opportunities. Since each ship is different, a tailored propulsion solution offering maximum performance with minimum levels of vibration and noise will be delivered.
Shipping in coastal waters and inland waterways puts high demands on propulsion systems because of the enormous variations in the operating conditions.
