The World to get Wärtsilä upgrades

The World to get Wärtsilä upgrades
The World will be retrofitted with a Wärtsilä Advanced Wastewater treatment system and a Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum system for navigation and external communication purposes.

The equipment is scheduled for delivery in April, 2016.
Both retrofits are replacing existing systems on the residential ship comprising 165 individual 'homes'. The Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum system, to be supplied as part of the order, includes the integration of an ice radar. The World is powered by two 12-cylinder and three 8-cylinder Wärtsilä 32 engines.
'Being a retrofit project, we had to design the system to fit the existing space. This created something of a design challenge, but our experience and know-how allowed us to meet the customer's needs and provide an optimal solution. Similarly, the navigational system represents the very latest technology,' commented Juha Kytölä, vp, environmental solutions, Wärtsilä.
