It is not just about upgrading ships. Greener shipping and the adoption of newer and smarter technologies pose a huge skilling challenge as no efficiency effort will work if people are not trained to handle the new systems and processes. Considering there are over 1.65 million seafarers on merchant ships alone, the cost implications of this effort could be massive. This is where simulation training, using new technologies like AR and VR, comes in.
Our solutions make this switch smoother and cost-efficient by providing highly realistic learning environments and the convenience of any time, anywhere training and assessment.
Leveraging 25 years of industry experience, unparalleled mathematical models and the latest techniques like gamification, virtual and augmented recreations, we offer the most sophisticated immersive training solutions to prepare mariners for the real world that awaits them onboard and onshore. These simulation solutions also expedite innovation and research processes by acting as the perfect testbed for new concepts and products that then directly contribute to decarbonisation and commercialisation of the solutions.

Taking training to the next level, our award-winning cloud simulation solution helps maritime schools and centres deliver a high-standard classroom learning experience remotely — on-demand, anytime, anywhere and without additional hardware.
Our market-leading navigational simulators are designed for the rapidly changing, digitised maritime industry and the next-gen seafarers, available for traditional classroom-based full-mission setups to cloud-based blended learning models – all on a single software platform.
Going beyond the standard joypad controls and monitors, Wärtsilä Smart realities combines sophisticated modelling with virtual and augmented reality to place trainees on a life-like virtual bridge or engine room — an exciting learning experience that appeals to next-gen seafarers.
Whether standard or type-specific training, our technological simulators allow trainees to quickly grasp both the fundamentals and the advanced aspects of Engine Room and Liquid Cargo Handling training for a wide range of ships, covering and exceeding all STCW requirements.
Packed with a 3D database editing tool, Model Wizard, and a Virtual Shipyard, Wärtsilä NTPRO simulators integrate simulation of the ship-channel hydrodynamic effects and operational procedures not only for maritime training but also for R&D applications.
Setting new benchmarks for immersive training for the world’s largest cruise company.
In 2015, Carnival Corporation made a significant investment to expand and upgrade its world-class CSMART Center for Simulation and Marine Training located in Almere, the Netherlands. The challenge was to equip the CSMART training facility with the ultimate maritime simulation solution.
