    Transporting cargo or passengers are the primary purpose of merchant vessels. These vessels can come in different sizes and shapes – from a long diving boat to ultra large crude carriers. They are the main tool of ocean transportation, carrying crude oil and goods throughout the world, in varied sizes of tankers, containers and bulk carriers. 

    Operational reliability is paramount, amongst other value propositions, to merchant vessel operators. We can deliver flexible solutions that look beyond current regulations to ensure vessels are prepared for future needs and business models.

    Cruise and ferry

    The maritime industry is facing increasing pressure to reduce its environmental impact. Regulations are becoming more stringent, and new authorities are establishing their own emission regulations in local areas. At the same time, the cruise industry is accelerating, and the number of cruise berths is growing rapidly. To ensure maximum efficiency, reliability and environmental performance over the entire lifecycle of the installation, Wärtsilä Shaft Line Solutions are able to meet specific ship design and operational requirements.

    Cruise ship

    From surveying the seas to safeguarding key trade routes, today’s navies are deployed in operations of varying scope and complexity and require ever more efficient vessels to meet modern military demands.

    In our position as a leading equipment supplier with manufacturing facilities around the world, we have the means to create fully integrated shaft line solutions for navies. We deliver advanced noise reducing, shock resistant solutions capable of performing in the harshest marine environments and in the most demanding operating conditions.

    Vessel owners and operators are looking for more advanced solutions which can provide value for money by lasting longer, preventing expensive emergency dockings and downtime in harbour, and avoiding leakages and associated costs. At the same time, owners also need fast delivery of seals and bearings products and spare parts. Wärtsilä Seals & Bearings’ portfolio is designed to improve lifecycle cost management, with a range of custom engineered shaft line products which can provide long service life to owners and operators.
