Wartsila introduces EvoTube® to improve Shaft Line technology for marine propulsion systems

Wärtsilä has unveiled EvoTube®, a breakthrough in Shaft Line technology that promises to revolutionise efficiency and environmental sustainability of marine propulsion systems.

EvoTube® is a significantly simplified system with fewer components than a conventional stern tube system. The inboard seal is mounted directly on the aft bearing housing, and the forward bearing is replaced with a standalone bearing inside the engine room. Its intelligent design optimises space utilisation and eases maintenance tasks.

Wärtsilä said that EvoTube® stands out for its versatility, accommodating both oil and water lubrication systems. Additionally, it offers the convenience of easy conversion from oil to water lubrication systems, effectively future-proofing vessels in terms of environmental considerations at any point during their operational lifespan.

"We're thrilled to announce EvoTube®- a game-changer in marine propulsion. Wärtsilä's commitment to innovation shines through in this technology, offering shipowners and operators an environmentally future-proof option for a seamless transition from Oil to Water. EvoTube® is not just a product; it's a testament to our dedication to advancing the maritime industry with cutting-edge solutions that simplify operations while minimizing environmental impact," stated Rob Burford, vice president of Wärtsilä Shaft Line Solutions.
