The technology group Wärtsilä in collaboration with PSA Marine successfully completed IntelliTug project’s sea trials. In fact, through their initiative both sides aim to further enable autonomous navigation.
Following Wärtsilä’s partnership with PSA Marine on developing the project of IntelliTug, both partners achieved a milestone after conducting the first trials at the Port of Singapore under real-world condition. In the following months, Wärtsilä and PSA Marine will keep developing the IntelliTug project, by testing and trialing in Singapore port waters.
As the Port of Singapore’s ambitions continue to become clearer with the construction of Tuas Mega-Terminal, a combination of technologies and innovations will increase the efficiency and safety of operations at the world’s busiest container transhipment hub. Wärtsilä responded to this by opening up a Wärtsilä Acceleration Centre.
Using a drone to connect the towline to an assisted vessel will drastically improve the safety margin of tug operations, as this will avoid the need for manoeuvring in the so-called danger zone, the company explains.
