Six new Sallaum Lines vessels to drive sustainability with Wartsila solutions

Wartsila Solutions to Minimize Carbon Footprint of New PCTC Vessels

Wartsila Corporation, Press release, April 23, 2024, at 11 AM EEST

Technology group Wartsila will supply a range of solutions aimed at minimizing the carbon footprint of six new Pure Car Truck Carrier (PCTC) vessels being built for Dubai-based Sallaum Lines DMCC. Part of the order was booked by Wartsila in 2023 and the remainder in Q1 2024.

The Wartsila solutions were selected following a very stringent evaluation process, with sustainability and minimal environmental impact being prime considerations. As a result, Wartsila, through its joint venture company, Wartsila Qiyao Diesel Company Ltd. (WQDC), was contracted to deliver three Wartsila 20DF dual-fuel auxiliary gen-sets, operating mainly on LNG fuel, for each of the six vessels. Wartsila was also contracted to deliver the transverse thrusters and the main engine control system for these vessels.

Then, for four of the vessels, Wartsila will supply the shaft generator systems, which will reduce the auxiliary generator sets’ running hours while at sea, thereby further reducing the ships’ emissions and lowering operating costs. The engines onboard each of the vessels will be supported via the Wartsila Data Collection Unit (WDCU) with cloud based services and remote monitoring to optimize operability, fuel economy, and periodic maintenance.

“Sallaum Lines is committed to sustainability and to reducing our environmental impact through implementing eco-friendly practices and reducing emissions. We are moving forward to a sustainable future by working to achieve zero emissions by 2050. This is why we have selected Wartsila to partner with us for these six new ships,” says Mr. Puneet Arora, Technical Manager – Sallaum Lines.

“We are working closely with Sallaum Lines in their efforts towards decarbonisation. In addition to this order, we recently signed a decarbonization programming agreement with them for two existing PCTC vessels in their fleet. This cooperation has further strengthened the level of trust between our companies. Together, we are aligned in our determination to enable the cleanest possible shipping operations,” comments Rajan Khanna, Head of Sales, Middle East – Wartsila Marine.

The vessels are being built at Chinese shipyards: four at China Merchants Jingling Shipyard and two at Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry Co. Delivery of the Wartsila equipment will commence in 2024.
