Fleet operations solution

highest level of safety at sea with maximum fuel efficiency

Increase safety, efficiency and compliance of your fleet in one go with

Wärtsilä Fleet Operations Solution

Wärtsilä Fleet Operations Solution saves costs and increases safety by automatically optimising route, providing the fullest and latest voyage data, while keeping the onboard and onshore parties informed and notified


From ECDIS to integrated voyage planning

The connected ECDIS gives you significant new opportunities, including a completely new way of voyage and route planning: the computer can plan a route through the actual charts, weather optimize it,  allows you to finetune and hazard-check it, download all needed charts and publications and auto-creates a voyage plan.


From e-Navigation to integrated fleet operations

The benefits of a connected ECDIS significantly extend to the onshore teams: Full and real time onshore visibility of vessel route and position, nautical awareness, near miss and incident response, vessel and voyage efficiency as well as inbuild connection to Ports.


From voyage efficiency to fleet efficiency

Connected vessels allow a very effective way of improving a whole fleets performance, not just a single voyage. Computerised notifications search all incoming data for pre-defined anomalies and improvement areas, enable the office staff and crew to focus on key items and have them tackled right away.

Replace a puzzle of components from different suppliers with the all-in-one workspace — Wärtsilä Fleet Operations Centre

Wärtsilä Fleet Operations Centre is an integrated service to help fleet operators increase safety & awareness of voyage planning and execution. The solution brings vessel, manager, operator and port working together in a transparent environment supported by AI. Fleet Operations Centre provides control of the whole voyage while fostering safety, awareness and efficiency.

  • Be aware of changes in weather conditions through playback and play ahead
  • Keep on top of environmental compliance and navigational warnings by combining additional chart information layers
  • Focus on those vessels which require your attention
  • Get extended situational awareness through mirrored information from the onboard equipment
  • Drill down to the pin-point situations where further investigation is needed
  • Understand WHAT happens and WHY

SmartLog: Focus on navigation instead of administration

Wärtsilä SmartLog is a mobile app which processes the data extracted directly from ECDIS and the connected digital data services. The app allows to reduce administrative burden on the crews and streamline reporting.

SmartLog features:

  • Position Reporting - Noon, Departure, Arrival and Bunkering Reports are pre-filled.
  • Ship Master Data - The vessel’s particulars and machinery details are configured.
  • Charterparty Compliance - While ensuring compliance with environmental reporting standards, SmartLog also provides evidence that crew are following contractual obligations.

SmartLog allows convenient time stamp collection and live transmission of events, for example, crossing into a MARPOL zone.

BridgeMate: Situational awareness, decision support and docking aid via one app

Situational awareness, decision support and docking aids are already available in one app. Meet Wärtsilä BridgeMate, a smart back-up and decision support tool to enhance your safety and efficiency onboard.
With only one app you can:

  • Get a smart extra back-up bridge station in case of emergency
  • Enhance safety with navigational hazards warnings
  • Use the effective navigation decision support tool within the WiFi coverage
  • Consult the berthing assistant on wings without any stationary conning display

Cyber security is ensured via the certified firewall (Translink). When offline, the application operates via the built-in GPS (in case of the main navigational system blackout).

Measure your vessel’s fuel flow with ZERO hardware investments

Virtual fuel flow is the technology within Wärtsilä Fleet Operations Solution proposal. It provides an aggregated fuel consumption measurement, obtained via Wärtsilä SmartLog, to high-frequency readings of fuel flow, which would otherwise require installation of a measuring device (flow meter). Hence, with the virtual fuel flow, you get the same output as the flow meter – with no hustle (added cost of sensors & integrations, calibration issues, errors, noise).

In fuel flow decomposition, the solution combines (virtual) fuel flows with environmental data (wind, sea state), vessel draft and speed, vessel particulars and general naval architecture principles (for example, relationship between propulsion power and wind resistance).

Fleet Operations Solution puts fragmented services in shipping under one umbrella to lift synergies and improve operational processes


How it works
  • Route planning happens on latest nautical charts resulting in a route always safe to sail
  • Built-in weather optimisation to find safe and most fuel efficient route
  • Data and charts are automatically delivered, no ordering, no USB
  • SmartLog allows ship-to-shore reporting with most data already pre-filled
  • A mobile tablet on board is used for SmartLog and 
    'take me home' ECDIS backup
  • Real time vessel and fleet tracking (no AIS holes)
  • Advanced Eniram vessel digital twin to enable further optimisation opportunities

Hardware agnostic solution

Wärtsilä Fleet Operations Solution could be used with 3rd party ECDIS. In this case Wärtsilä delivers Planning Station on PanelPC. Route Planning Station Navi-Planner is the central onboard hub for voyage planning, route optimization, charts and data delivery.

Enabling mobility, scale & focus

The solution can support a single traveling superintendent with a tailored mobile app or run a full fleet operations center, which becomes commonplace in many large shipping companies. The full solution is notification-driven, the users get notified on all items they want to see, be they navigational, vessel performance, data quality or maintenance issues.


Flexibly selectable modules can be combined for each shipping company's needs
