Our Services

Wärtsilä Funa offers a comprehensive scope of services in four key areas.

    Design & System Integration
    Consulting
    In some situations, an owner, developer or architect may involve Wärtsilä Funa in a project to supply fee-based consulting services. This may be at any phase of a project’s development and can serve a variety of purposes. Our consulting services can include creative development, range of magnitude (ROM) cost estimating, peer review and upgrade or expansion options to name a few.

    Design
    Wärtsilä Funa offers fee-based design services. Our design engineers have extensive experience in a wide range of entertainment systems and environments. They understand how to integrate technical systems into standardized architectural plans will work in close collaboration with clients, architects and designers to insure that these systems conform to and compliment the design aesthetic.
    Integrated entertainment systems
    Our best value-for-money offering is as an integrated entertainment systems design and integration company. Our scope of services starts with conceptual design and carries through to system training and handover. As an integrated systems provider, we bring the full strength of our global resources and flexibility to the project.

    Commercial integrator
    Wärtsilä Funa is always in pursuit of commercial audio video systems integration tender opportunities. Working with concepts and designs provided by others, we offer competitive pricing backed by seasoned professional project managers, system fabricators, installation and commissioning teams.

    Engineering & Coordination
    Specification
    A technical specification is an invaluable tool for the successful development of a project. Depending on the scope of the project, the specification may consist of a single document or a comprehensive set of associated documents. Wärtsilä Funa has extensive experience drafting specification documents for many different types of projects.

    Research & development
    Wärtsilä Funa's business is rooted in technology. Our engineers and designers are always searching for new technologies, products and processes that can be applied to the systems we work with and the markets we operate in. Wärtsilä invests heavily in continued education for its employees and encourages participation in industry conferences, seminars and trade shows in order to gain new knowledge.

    Engineering
    Wärtsilä Funa's engineering group provides the documentation and detailed engineering that is necessary for the installation to begin. A comprehensive and detailed design package means no miscommunication during field installation.  We maintain one of the largest design and engineering departments in the industry.
    Project management
    Wärtsilä Funa’s highly trained project management teams have years of experience working on many varied projects in multiple industries. The project management team size is determined by the scope of services and the specific requirements of the project (budget, schedule, location, complexity, etc.) and may include a project director, project manager, site manager, project coordinator and/or a yard coordinator.

    Procurement & logistics
    Wärtsilä Funa's procurement department oversees all project purchases as outlined in the scope of supply and is fully supported by Wärtsilä Corporate Procurement Practices. By maintaining purchasing offices in both Europe and the US, we can analyze multiple factors such as equipment cost, availability, shipping costs and transit time to determine the best option for sourcing each piece of equipment for the project.

    Production & Training
    Fabrication
    With dedicated fabrication facilities in the US and Europe and by leveraging existing Wärtsilä facilities in locations around the world, we are able to custom build panels, components and equipment racks to fit client-specific applications. We can pre-fabricate, pre-wire and thoroughly test assemblies prior to shipping, establishing quality control processes from the start. 

    Installation
    Wärtsilä Funa’s installation technicians are experienced and accredited industry professionals with the skills to work with other trades on any project site. This is especially important in the global market, where language and accepted trade practices / construction methods may prove difficult.

    Programming
    Wärtsilä Funa's engineers and programmers can design programming specifically tailored to the particular application and intended user. For large or small projects, the integration and programming of IT based audiovisual control technologies is of critical importance to the proper operation and functionality of the overall system.
    Commissioning
    During this phase, Wärtsilä Funa’s commissioning team will ensure that all equipment is performing properly as an entire system using Site Acceptance Procedures as specified by the client.  We troubleshoot as necessary and take corrective actions as appropriate to bring equipment to the specified operational standards.

    Training
    Wärtsilä Funa personnel are available to provide hands on training to your staff. We can provide system operation and maintenance training, to the client and/or the client’s designated representatives, staff, etc. We typically prepare appropriate training materials and then provide copies to all trainees a few weeks prior to training. This organized and hands-on approach to training results in better retention of the material.
