Integrated Vessel Control Systems

Seamless integration of navigation and automation systems for more efficient, safer, and sustainable voyaging.


Vessels today need to comply with ever-higher demands on efficiency, durability, and safety. As new standards come into force, managing stricter emissions margins becomes necessary with no room to slack. In this new-normal, Wärtsilä Voyage’s Integrated Bridge Control Systems and Automation solutions provide seamless integration of systems, enabling the crew and office to take complete control of the ship at all times. A user-friendly interface and re-sailing the voyage in a simulator further help improve crew performance and efficacy. Plus, the lean architecture of the solution allows very cost-effective upgrades and refits.

Designed for new builds and retrofits, our integrated bridge system solutions for voyage planning and optimisation, embed the vessel into the logistic chain by connecting it to ports for Just-in-time arrival. This holistic approach to voyaging opens nth possibilities for truly effective vessel management.
