Finnish technology group Wärtsilä has introduced a semi-autonomous navigation system installed on a Great Lakes self-unloading bulk freighter, which became the largest ship ever capable of performing automated docking and dock-to-dock sailing operations.
It is known that COVID-19 pandemic has enhanced digitalization and remote working. Following the situation, Wärtsilä explained that combining AI and people skills will be key to post-pandemic growth.
The technology group Wärtsilä has successfully completed its first commercial installation of the Wärtsilä Navi-Harbour WebVTS 5.0 software application.
A partnership between Finnish technology group Wartsila and Grieg Edge, the innovation hub of Norwegian shipping group Grieg Star, has received funding support by the Norwegian government of 46.3 million NOK (4.4 million EUR), to build the world’s first green ammonia-fueled tanker.
The technology group Wärtsilä, recently delivered and installed customised LNGPac bunkering and liquid cargo handling simulators in an effort to enhance crew training operations.
Wärtsilä launched an analysis, highlighting that flexibility is the key to unlock higher levels of renewables in the next 10 years and enable a pathway to a net-zero energy system by 2050 or before.
Warstila focuses on the “bright side” of the pandemic, noting that shipowners could use the pandemic downtime to upgrade and transform old ships into leaner and cleaner vessels fit for the future.
The technology group Wärtsilä along with Brazil-based offshore operator, CBO, joined forces for Latin America’s first hybrid vessel upgrade initiative.
Wartsila continues its collaboration with LUT University (Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology LUT) aiming to the use of data in long-term strategic planning and thinking about how to meet the challenges of a 100% renewable energy future.
In efforts to reach a full decarbonization, Greece is looking for ways to achieve 100% decarbonization across hundreds of inhabited islands, following Wärtsilä’s power system modelling.
