Decarbonising maritime will take more than technology

 

In recent years, the maritime sector has awoken to the pressing need to make critical sustainability improvements and rethink its activities by embracing technology and digitalisation. Wärtsilä embraced the call for sustainability from the very beginning and promoted the change through active collaboration in the ecosystem and investments in new technology to usher the maritime industry into the age of decarbonised shipping.

    The maritime industry's discussion of decarbonisation thus far has focused upon uncertainties, but Wärtsilä sees the situation rather differently. While many aspects of decarbonisation are indeed unknown, explains Andrea Morgante, Vice President, Strategy, Marine Power, certainties do exist, and Wärtsilä is well prepared to advise its customers on how the right decisions can be made.

      We believe in the power of our industry and we continually tell our customers that the uncertainties they keep hearing about are, in fact, certainties.
