They carry a variety of liquid cargoes in bulk, such as crude oil, products and chemicals.
Tankers can range in size of capacity from several hundred tons, which includes vessels for servicing small harbours and coastal settlements, to several hundred thousand tons, for long-range haulage. Besides ocean- or seagoing tankers there are also specialized inland-waterway tankers which operate on rivers and canals with an average cargo capacity up to some thousand tons.
In most of cases, the voyages are long, fuel consumption is usually the main focus of the solution that WinGD can propose.The standard machinery solution is reliable, simple, safe and economical, with a 2-stroke engine connected to a single shaft line. The common-rail system has built-in redundancy. This eliminates unexpected engine stops and introduces the highest level of flexibility for engine tuning. The benefits of machinery reliability can also be enhanced through the Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) service. This aims to provide extended intervals between overhauls and improved operating profits. For increased machinery efficiency, waste heat recovery (WHR) can be selected.
