Based on analysis and modelling, the programme will be tailored to these specific vessels so that the right solutions can be selected for optimal sustainability. Sallaum Lines is the first Middle East operator to take advantage of this service.

Among the potential solutions available through the Decarbonisation Programme are Wärtsilä’s energy-saving solutions, as well as the introduction of alternative low- and zero-carbon fuels.

This is an important step forward for us towards achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. We are familiar with Wärtsilä’s capabilities in maximising operational efficiency and minimising environmental impact, and we look forward to benefitting from their experience and technical know-how, said Puneet Arora, Technical Manager – Sallaum Lines.

The Sallaum Lines vessels selected for this programme are the 183-metre long ‘Silver Queen’ and ‘Silver Sky’ PCTCs, both of which can carry 4,900 cars. The delivery time for the programme is three months.

Decarbonisation is a central pillar of Wärtsilä’s customer support strategy. With this order from Sallaum Lines, we are helping to shape a sustainable future for the marine sector in the Middle East. Many companies in the region are in the early stages of their decarbonisation journey, and with this program, we can support and help them to invest in the most appropriate solutions for their particular vessels, commented Rajan Khanna, Head of Sales, Middle East – Wärtsilä Marine Power.
