The engine size for a ship is determined by the maximum power required but the amount of time spent at full power varies from most of the time to almost never. Probably the most extreme example of powerful engines hardly ever being used is in the world of tugs. In Wärtsilä’s latest Technical Journal, two new tug designs are shown together with a comprehensive insight into the operational usage profile of these vessels. Only four per cent of the time the engines are producing more than sixty per cent full power of which maximum power is around one per cent. In an example, an alternative to the twin 8L26 engined mechanical driven thrusters, is a hybrid solution where twin 9L20 engines are mechanically coupled to thrusters but also fitted with electric motors.
