The multiple benefits of the Wärtsilä 20DF dual-fuel engines were cited as the reason for the contract award over strong competitive bids. The ships are being built for China Oilfield Services Co Ltd (COSL) at the Wuchang Shipbuilding Heavy Industry yard and the Liaonan Shipyard in China. The order with Wärtsilä was signed in March 2019.

Among the value-adding advantages cited in choosing the Wärtsilä 20DF engine were its high fuel efficiency, low operating costs and good environmental performance, as well as its low-load operating ability and proven reliability and durability.

The 40 Wärtsilä engines are scheduled to be delivered to the shipyards at the end of 2019. Wärtsilä has a good relationship with the owners having supplied various engines and other propulsion equipment for their fleet.
