Wärtsilä, has introduced a new series of midsized axial pump waterjets aimed at the high speed ferry, high speed patrol craft, and customized yachting markets, the series can handle shaft powers up to 4,500 kW. A key design target for the new series is high performance throughout the life of the propulsion system. Stainless steel is widely used in the construction, thereby reducing both maintenance and performance loss over the life of the unit. The task of installation of the waterjet has been simplified for the shipyard. It comes in a fast and easy 'plug & play' installation module that offers owners and shipyards lower installation costs.
