First introduced in the late 1980s, the Wartsila gas-diesel concept is now enjoying success in its original target market - offshore applications. The gas-diesel engines may be run on gas (with a 3% pilot of liquid fuel) or entirely on liquid fuel, either MDO, heavy fuel or even crude oil. Full rated output is available, irrespective of fuel. The gas-diesel engine allow switch from one fuel to another without interrupting power generation. Several examples of gas-diesel applications for Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels are described.
