The Integrated Vessel Management System from Wärtsilä offers a high level of integration between the ship’s main control and monitoring systems, such as machinery automation, HVAC automation, emergency shutdown and integrated bridge systems.
Redundancy is built into all levels of the system, preventing a system failure from causing loss of control, monitoring, or safety functions. Work stations are multi-functional and any station can be used for any task. The system communication network is
redundant and based on fiber optics. The process control stations have main and reserve units distributed in different compartments. I/O field buses are redundant with electrically isolated branches. These features ensure availability and operational safety.
