Wärtsilä 32 methanol engine

Offering simple handling and storage, reliable combustion and near carbon-neutral power (when made using renewable electricity and captured carbon), it is no surprise that methanol is emerging as a leading candidate for decarbonising shipping.

Wärtsilä’s methanol-fuelled engines have powered the Stena Line ferry Stena Germanica since 2015. Now ship owners can take advantage of this long-established methanol expertise with all the state-of-the-art features of one of Wärtsilä’s most widely used engine platforms – offering a viable and proven next step on the path to decarbonisation.
