Wartsila Delivers Four Side Thrusters To Meyer Werft Shipyard

- Mar 27, 2020-

Wartsila propulsion plant (Wuxi) Co., Ltd. successfully delivered four side thrusters to Meyer werft shipyard at the end of March this year. This is a large-scale side thrust with model wtt-36cp and rotating speed of 3500 kW, which is built for Disney Cruise Company. Disney commissioned Meyer werft shipyard to build three new ships, the first of which will be delivered in 2021 and named Disney wish (see attached figure). This will be the first ship in the Disney series to adopt an environmentally friendly LNG drive system.

Meyer werft is one of Wartsila's important customers. In 2010 and 2011, it built two cruise ships for American shipping companies - Disney Dream and Disney fantasy. After completion, the two cruises became the largest ocean going passenger ships ever built in Germany, and the third cruise ship built at the same level will be larger than the previous two.

Through the efforts of various teams in Wartsila, Wuxi factory once again received a large order from Meyer werft shipyard. At present, the coronavirus is still rampant in China and around the world, and Wuxi factory has overcome many difficulties and delivered the side push to customers on schedule. We will continue to adhere to the principle of "quality, punctuality and cost", and provide more products to meet the market demand.
