Wärtsilä engine trieste

At a press event in Trieste, Italy this week, Finnish marine engine manufacturer Wärtsilä pulled the curtain to reveal the RT-flex 50DF, the world’s first 2-stroke, low-pressure, dual fuel engine.  By all accounts this is a very unique engine, one that Wärtsilä emphatically declares will be a game-changer for the shipping business.
