Lifecycle upgrades

Optimise your vessel’s performance across its entire lifecycle

The maritime industry is in a period of transition towards more sustainable and energy-efficient operations, driven by the need to meet increasingly strict regulatory requirements. As a result, ship owners and operators are seeking technologies that will help them to stay compliant and competitive while at the same time maintaining profitability.

To ensure that your assets deliver maximum value throughout their lifecycle you will need to make important decisions on issues like modernisations, modifications, upgrades and major repairs. A reliable partner that can provide future-proof solutions and is capable of managing every aspect of complex retrofit and upgrade projects is therefore invaluable.

Wärtsilä offered a full supply scope, including a detailed engineering design package, which due to our small engineering team and limited resources proved invaluable. We felt that we were all part of the same team, all seeking the common aim of ensuring a successful installation in an efficient and timely manner.
