The company said the eight vessels will use RT-flex60C main engines.
The 1,700-teu ships will serve as feeder vessels in Asian waters and will be built at Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard in China.
Wartsila received the order in June. The scope of supply includes eight Wartsila RT-flex60C main engines, which will be built by a Wartsila licensee, Hudong Heavy Machinery (HHM), based in Shanghai.
The compact size of the engine is ideal for the narrow engine room that the vessel design calls for, the company added.
Four of the ships are being built for Buss Shipping of Hamburg and four for Eastern Mediterranean Maritime of Greece.
