Meeting and exceeding the future requirements of the marine industry

Reducing cost throughout the lifetime of your investment

Meeting and exceeding the future requirements of the marine industry is more complex now than ever before. We have a shared responsibility to innovate, and to deliver the future Smart Marine solutions today that successfully address these requirements.

The evolving market needs mean that new build projects are an increasingly complex process involving numerous suppliers, engineers, architects, brokers, classification societies, and of course the shipyards. This complexity is being driven by environmental and safety regulations, and by the need to lower operating costs through achieving greater efficiencies.

This is increasing the pace at which the marine industry is embracing technology to deliver greater value and deeper insight into operations. This will ultimately reduce costs, not only in the build phase but throughout the lifetime of your investment.

This doesn’t change the need to deliver on time, within budget, and according to specification. To achieve this, collaborating with the right partner as early as possible in the process is critical. It will lower risk and building costs, ensure that the delivered product is future ready and optimised, and that it will come with lifecycle support that is focused on your needs.

We wanted to build a new vessel that represents the future. For this reason we have emphasised high efficiency and environmental sustainability, and Wärtsilä was the obvious choice to meet these aims.

Reducing the environmental impact at every stage of a vessel’s lifecycle

With the pressures of an increasingly globalised economy, and the drive to reduce the environmental impact at every stage of a vessel’s lifecycle, collaborating with a qualified partner to develop the right solutions to meet your business needs is essential. In this way, the risks involved in a new build project are mitigated, and ongoing operations and maintenance are simplified.

Wärtsilä’s years of experience in successfully delivering innovative integrated systems to marine customers across the globe makes us ideally placed to support your ongoing needs. With a worldwide network of service support and our single-source supplier capabilities, we ease the newbuild process and provide the needed systems integration, which speeds the newbuild project and reduces your risk at every stage.
