The Wärtsilä Smart-EP-Level is a complete and standalone Level Measuring Unit that utilizes electro-pneumatic technology to measure the level of any liquid media inside a tank. The hydrostatic pressure of a liquid is measured by introducing compressed air into the tank via a pipe. Signals corresponding to the pressure measured are used locally, or can be transmitted to a centralized system to assess the level measurement. The Wärtsilä Smart-EP-Level can also process the measured pressure using pre-recorded tank data, and in this way can be used as a stand-alone level measuring device. The Smart-EP-Level generates a second and separate 4-20 mA signal that corresponds to the pressure measured, which can be used for local monitoring.
The Wärtsilä Smart VS Level sensor is a complete standalone level measuring unit specifically designed for the continuous monitoring of flooding in the dry compartments, bilges and void spaces of ships. It uses APSS Smart-VS-Level sensors to comply with the Safe Return to Port (SRtP) rules. The hydrostatic pressure of a liquid is directly measured by sensors that are in direct contact with the liquid, while the presence of liquid is independently detected by a float switch. The digital signals corresponding to the pressure measured and to the detection of liquid, each by an independent sensor, are either used locally or transmitted to a centralized system.
The Traffic Light System consists of a single control unit and several alarm columns. The system is powered by two independents power supplies (230VAC from UPS) and it is fully redundant.

The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery to the yard during the fourth quarter of 2017. “Wärtsilä has worked in close cooperation with the owners starting from the early stages of this large project. This has enabled a well engineered and fully integrated propulsion arrangement, and an LNG fuel system that is optimised for the needs of the vessel, ” says Arthur Boogaard, General Manager, Business Development Special Vessels at Wärtsilä.
Most of the vessels in the Gas Carrier fleet are fully pressurized with cargo tank volumes typically in the range of 1 000 m3 to 13 000 m3. Wärtsilä offers modern and advanced solutions for such vessels. Fully pressurized vessels carry LPG at ambient temperatures and with corresponding saturated gas pressures. The design pressure for fully pressurized Cargo tanks is typically 18 bar(g). Wärtsilä has developed the new and alternative QiCool design concept, which utilizes the best aspects of both fully pressurized and semi-refrigerated designs. With this approach, the cargo tank design pressure is reduced and cargo chiller units are installed. The QiCool design allows an increased cargo loading rate of to 98% with design figures for SW and air temperature. The QiCool design enables the achievement of cost savings and higher revenues.
The Twister is designed to transport gas and chemical products along shallow rivers. A fast BWMS installation process was therefore essential to reduce the downtime impact on the vessel’s operations. For retrofit applications and upgrades, where space availability can be a determining factor, the modular configuration of Wärtsilä’s AQUARIUS® range was a particular advantage and the entire installation process took just 3 weeks. With the trial period successfully completed, and full compliance with the IMO D2 performance standard had been demonstrated, the Wärtsilä AQUARIUS® was awarded Type Approval in accordance with the requirements of the 2004 IMO Convention for the control and management of ships’ ballast water and sediments. The Wärtsilä AQUARIUS® UV was the first BWMS to have been fully endorsed and type approved by the Flag Administration of the Netherlands. The vessel is also equipped with the Super Trident Sewage Treatment Plant ST1A, certified to meet IMO MEPC 159(55) guidelines. Optimised for the treatment of black and grey wastewater flows, and suitable for conventional gravity and vacuum fed collection systems, the Wärtsilä Hamworthy Sewage Treatment Plant is controlled automatically. This allows unattended operation, with reduced maintenance requirements and lower long-term operating costs.
The Wärtsilä underwater mountable thrusters with designation WST-U are part of a series that comes with several added features, such as an increased power range, an 8° tilted propeller gearbox, and the Wärtsilä Thruster Nozzle providing a superior and reliable DP performance. The underwater mountable thrusters from the LMT series are available for the lower part of the power range.
Our field proven system is self supplied with energy and results in zero volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions. These emissions from the global sea transportation of crude oil and associated products, account for a total of more than 5 million tonnes per year. The Wärtsilä VOC plant ensures that cargo tank pressures are maintained low enough to keep the vent valve closed. This prevents VOC from being emitted to the atmosphere, and the gas is instead fed to the VOC recovery module, where it is treated by compression and condensation. The liquefied gas is then fed to the VOC fuel tank. We have also developed a system for VOC recovery in offshore oil loading applications. It exceeds the Norwegian authorities’ requirements for Non-Methane Volatile Organic Compounds (NMVOCs) by reducing VOC emissions by 100 per cent, including methane, which is not currently specified in the regulatory requirements.
