Ranging and treatment facilities

Our multi-influence ranging systems for acquisition of underwater signatures of naval vessels including but not limited to magnetic, acoustic, electric and pressure signatures for mobile and stationary employment enable navies to adjust and validate the degaussing settings of their vessels.

Sophisticated software for modelling and analysis of the ranging results forms an integral part of our supplies. The design of all customized systems are based on corresponding modeling and calculations where Wärtsilä has a many years of successful experience.

The planning, design and delivery of fixed and mobile magnetic ranges and of demagnetisation facilities for ships and ship equipment complete Wärtsilä’s comprehensive range of supplies and services in the area of magnetic systems.
