The marine industry is increasingly turning to more advanced solutions as the cost of available technology decreases, and its reliability is substantiated. The environmental and economic viability of these complex solutions typically results from an integrated approach, encompassing vessel design, equipment selection, and on-site support for the shipyard and owner.
At Wärtsilä, we believe that upcoming emissions regulations require the re-design of many existing vessel types. This is especially true of vessels operating in the proximity of large population centres, as is the case with tugs in ports.
An integrated approach means a single contact point for project management and installation, a one-stop shop for all aspects of lifecycle support, and optimized overall performance that incorporates substantial energy savings. As all the systems are engineered to work together, their compatibility and functionality is guaranteed.
