Autodocking technology successfully tested on ferry

The system is activated some 2000 metres from the berth and the vessel continues at normal transit speed. The system then performs a gradual slowing of speed, and activates the line-up and docking manoeuvre fully automatically until the ship is berthed. When the ship is ready to sail again, the system can be used for the departure procedure as well.

Wärtsilä, Templar Executives to establish cyber academy

Wärtsilä will cooperate with the cyber security company Templar Executives to set up a cyber academy in Singapore.

Scrubbers not a definite solution for 2020 sulphur cap compliance

Scrubbers as a measure to comply with the sulphur cap in 2020 would be a quick fix, according to Wartsila’s director of exhaust gas cleaning, Sigurd Jenssen, and more drastic measures are needed. Mr. Jenssen said that equipping 2,000-3,000 ships with scrubbers by 2020 can be done. But with a global fleet of about 60,000 vessels, many of them will have to use cleaner fuels.

Overview of the Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems

During his presentation at the last GREEN4SEA Conference, Mr. Ole Johan Øby Svendsen, Sales Manager, Exhaust Gas Cleaning, Wärtsilä, argued on how to customize a scrubber system to fit the operators’ need for new builds and retrofits as well as to make a feasible installation process for retrofit installations.

Wärtsilä submits BWMS for USCG Type Approval

The Wärtsilä Aquarius EC BWMS uses proven filtration and electro-chlorination technology.

Wärtsilä, Maersk Drilling team up on 25-year thruster strategy

Finnish Wärtsilä and global drilling contractor Maersk Drilling joined forces to create a 25-year thruster maintenance strategy for Maersk’s three semi-submersible rigs and four drillships. By reducing the thruster exchange time, the deep-sea rigs and drillships will spend less time in sheltered waters for thruster maintenance.

Sustainability key to shipbuilding industry
