The engine was first introduced in the 1980s, and to date more than 4000 units have been sold to the marine industry alone. The Wartsila 32 engine is a choice for both the marine and land-based power plants markets. In the marine industry the engine is used for both main engine and auxiliary engine applications. It is typically selected to power different types of tankers, container vessels, and offshore support and drilling vessels, while in the cruise and ferry sector, the Wartsila 32 is the most favoured engine of its size.
